UI professor receives American Cancer Society research grant

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The American Cancer Society has awarded a professor at the University of Iowa College of Medicine a three-year, $307,500 institutional research grant to fund projects at the UI Cancer Center.

Dr. Richard D. Williams, associate director of clinical programs at the cancer center, and professor and head of the Department of Urology, received the grant from the American Cancer Society.

Beginning in July 1998, the grant will provide $102,500 a year for projects in basic, clinical, or psychological and behavioral cancer research conducted by junior faculty at the UI. The grant will also provide funds to allow a graduate student in the professional health sciences to pursue a career in cancer research.
