UAMS snags $11.5M for new cancer center

Little Rock-based University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute received an $11.48 million federal grant to create the Center for Molecular Interactions in Cancer.

The grant, awarded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences' Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence, will create two research cores at the new center: the structural biology core and biomolecular interactions core.

"The center will create a critical mass of researchers who are able to gain deep molecular-level insights into the mechanisms that govern the initiation, progression and treatment of cancer," Robert Eoff, PhD, professor in the department of biochemistry and molecular biology at the UAMS College of Medicine, said in a March 26 news release. Dr. Eoff will lead the center.
