Agencourt Bioscience Offers $10K Grant in Charity Event

This update serves to correct the point that the application deadline is Oct. 31, not Oct. 24, as originally reported.

 

NEW YORK, Sept. 10 (GenomeWeb News) - Agencourt Bioscience today said it will offer a $10,000 grant to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute researchers as part of an annual fund-raising bicycle ride across Massachusetts being conducted by the Jimmy Fund, a local charity.

 

A panel composed of Dana-Farber and Agencourt representatives will review research proposals and the grant will be awarded on Dec. 1. The deadline for applications is Oct. 31.

 

The grant is part of Agencourt's sponsorship of one of the racing teams participating in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, an annual race across the state that raises funds for the Jimmy Fund, a Dana-Farber Cancer Institute charity.
