Funding to boost NCCC, Stanford collaboration
The School of Medicine has allocated $250,000 for three years to the Northern California Cancer Center to boost the ongoing collaboration between the two institutions.
The money will be used to recruit researchers who will work jointly with the two organizations and to develop new programs in epidemiology.
Samuel Bronfman II, chair of the Northern California Cancer Center's board of trustees, said, "We are grateful for the ongoing support of the cancer center and are confident this gift will continue to build on the already extraordinary collaborations between NCCC and Stanford."
The NCCC, which is based in Fremont, is a collaborator with Stanford's NCI-designated Cancer Center. Together they conduct epidemiology research, provide cancer outreach and collect cancer epidemiology data. Many of the NCCC researchers also share a joint appointment at the School of Medicine.
