Breast Cancer Project Receives NIH Grant


In collaboration with Geoff Clark at the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville, the Schook Laboratory has been awarded an NIH EUREKA award for the development of a transgenic breast cancer model. The NIH EUREKA (Exceptional, Unconventional Research Enabling Knowledge Acceleration) grants are R01 program funds for exceptionally innovative research that will have a substantial impact on the scientific community. The EUREKA targets investigators who are testing novel, unconventional hypotheses or are pursuing major methodological or technical challenges. We have also made a pre-proposal to the Army breast cancer program, which stands as a significant extension of the NIH proposal.
