ElkusThe Richard A. Elkus, M.D., Pilot Grant Program in Pancreatic Cancer Research

Richard A. Elkus, M.D., lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2005. In his honor, the Elkus family has established the Richard A. Elkus, M.D., Pilot Grant in Pancreatic Cancer Research at UAB.

DEADLINE: February 17, 2017

QUALIFICATIONS: 

  • Applicants: The Richard A. Elkus, M.D., Pilot Grant in Pancreatic Cancer Research is open to UAB faculty at any rank (Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor) who are leading an independent research program.
  • Purpose: To support highly meritorious scientific research in pancreatic cancer. All areas of research, from basic mechanisms to translational projects, to clinical therapeutic intervention to public health and epidemiology, are encouraged. This award is intended to “seed” nascent pancreatic cancer projects that will become competitive for extramural funding with the data generated as result of receiving pilot funds.
