MIOCA is Thrilled to Increase Geri Fournier Ovarian Cancer Research Grant Opportunities for 2016
Given the overwhelming support in 2015, the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance Board of Directors recently agreed to increase research grant opportunities for the upcoming grant cycle. Pam Dahlmann, MIOCA President, states, "We were so proud to award our first grants to three very deserving recipients this year. It is critical that innovative research be funded if there are to be gains made in discovering improved treatments or an early detection test. It is very exciting that, with the help of so many donors, we are able to double the funds which MIOCA will direct to research here in Michigan next year."
MIOCA's Board would like to thank all of the researchers who applied for the Geri Fournier Ovarian Cancer Research Grant. Awards will be announced by March 31, 2016.
