Professor Cai Invited to Join Cancer Review Committee

Posted on May 2011

Professor Weibo Cai was invited to serve on the Interfaces Review Committee for the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). This is a truly an exceptional honor for an Assistant Professor.

CPRIT, established by the State of Texas in 2009, is planning to issue $3 billion in general obligation bonds over 10 years to fund grants for cancer research and prevention in Texas. The grants that were reviewed by the Interfaces Review Committee include R21/R01-type grants, Shared Instrumentation Awards, Multi-Investigator Research Awards, along with many other funding mechanisms. The total budget of the individual grants reviewed by this committee ranges from $200K to more than $20M.

Congrats Professor Cai!
