My K99/R00 Pathway to Independence grant to the National Cancer Institute was discussed on 6/27/19, and the following day was assigned an impact score of 10! Grants are scored on their potential impact from a score of 10 (best) to 90 (worst) in 1 point increments. This indicates that the grant will likely be funded. I am blown away by this score, and can’t wait to get started on the science! The grant is titled “Neuromodulation of subcortical circuits controlling cancer growth & metastasis”.
