Clark Atlanta Continues Fight Against Cancer with $5.8 Million Grant Renewal
Clark Atlanta University today announced a renewal of a $5.8 million grant to its Center for Cancer Research and Therapeutic Development.
The five-year grant enables continuation of research, training and community outreach activities in the African-American community conducted through the CCRTD’s Center of Excellence for Prostate Cancer Research, Education and Community Services.
Dr. Shafiq Khan, executive director of the CCRTD and Georgia Research Alliance eminent scholar, is also principal investigator of this award.
“We are approaching critical, exciting junctures in our work and anticipate major breakthroughs in prostate cancer research in the very near future,” Khan said. “As important, however, is our commitment to ensure that our work translates into a culture of awareness and prevention, particularly in the African-American community. With this award from NIH/NIMHD, we will now be able to continue our significant efforts along both tracks.”
