The American Cancer Society awards a very prestigious grant to the University of Vermont Cancer Center. This grant provides support for training and to recruit prospective researchers in the field. This grant in particular is extremely competitive. Overall, federal funding is declining and this will help future researchers push results to new levels. Funding will aim to produce partnerships between the laboratory research and then right into the clinical field, helping patients much sooner.

At the University of Vermont Cancer Center, researchers work in many fields like cancer prevention, detection and treatment.
