Wally Curran recently got news that the Winship Cancer Institute (WCI) application was rated "Outstanding" by NIH/NCI in WCI's successful bid for a five year renewal as a NCI-Designated Cancer Center. The award is $7.5M over 5 years. Which will certainly help fund the $20K a year that WCI has committed to the CFAR Developmental Core as matching funds for an AIDS malignancy-related CFAR03 award. Thank you Wally!!!
