NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Prostate Cancer Foundation yesterday named the winners of its Young Investigators Awards for 2008, and several of the 19 total winners will be conducting genomics and proteomics studies.
The program will provide each awardee with $75,000 for three years, for a total of $225,000, which will be matched by the recipients’ institutions. The investigators generally are under age 35, already have achieved junior faculty positions, and are “committing their lives to the field of prostate cancer.”
