Based on a recent generous gift to the UWCCC from Dr. and Mrs. Ernest Borden, we are most pleased to announce this Request For Proposals (RFP) for the first UWCCC Interdisciplinary Cancer Immunology-Immunotherapy Pilot Project Competition. Professor Borden, a former UWCCC Leader of Immunotherapy (1978-90), has been a worldwide leader in Cancer Immunology and in the translational development of Interferons. In keeping with the recent UWCCC Strategic Plan, Ernie and Louise Borden are eager to be helping the UWCCC enhance initiatives in translational immunotherapies. With additional funding support from Howard Bailey, UWCCC director, these awards will support new and novel pilot grants to encourage and support transdisciplinary cancer immunology/immunotherapy, which are built upon a research plan based upon a convergence of scientific disciplines and methodologies.
