The UC CRCC is a systemwide, faculty-directed cancer research program that provides competitive intramural research awards for topics in any discipline that address any aspect of cancer. Funding for this opportunity is provided through donations and bequests to UC for cancer research. The CRCC provides one-year seed grants to faculty on the 10 UC campuses. Currently, the CRCC awards grants to:
  • New UC faculty to initiate cancer research projects;
  • Established investigators in other areas of research to initiate cancer research projects;
  • Established cancer investigators to initiate cancer studies in new areas.
