Cancer Research Funding Boosts UTSW Treatments and Prevention

Cumulative CPRIT Funding, 2010-Present

The Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) has awarded more than $48 million in new grants to UT Southwestern investigators to support cancer-related projects and recruit pre-eminent researchers.

The grants include five Multi- Investigator Research Awards that allow “dream teams” of scientists handpicked from multiple academic institutions to work collaboratively on cancer research projects.

“Our scientists and clinicians are dedicated to the fight against cancer,” says Daniel K. Podolsky, M.D., President of UT Southwestern. “These awards will allow our investigators, in many instances working closely with colleagues at other institutions, to pursue high-impact work that addresses the most important unanswered questions that will lead to better treatment and prevention.”
