UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the UNC Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases have received a $3.7 million grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to study the growing worldwide cancer problem and expand the University’s efforts in Malawi to study and treat HIV-associated cancers.
A delegation from the Tata Memorial Centre cancer hospital in Mumbai, India visited the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center as part of a U.S. tour visiting comprehensive cancer centers. The visit, sponsored through the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Liaison for International Partnerships, was intended to share knowledge about how American universities and hospitals operate a comprehensive cancer center.
In October 2013, Adam Goldstein, MD, MPH, embarked on an incredible journey taking him to the heartland of civilization’s beginning.
The grant will be used to further research to globally understand regulated protein degradation and how this contributes to normal cellular functions that are dysfunctional in cancer.
