Karmanos Cancer Institute and Wayne State University awarded prestigious grant

Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit and its academic partner Wayne State University received the prestigious LAPS Grant (Lead Academic Participating Sites) for the second time. The LAPS Grant is a national recognition honoring outstanding clinical and academic leadership who help advance cancer research.

A National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center since 1978, Karmanos has consistently met and exceeded clinical trial enrollment accruals to advance science and help make new cancer therapies available to more cancer patients. In addition, Karmanos experts have played an important role in both scientific and administrative leadership roles, serving on national task forces and committees and authoring/co-authoring several abstracts and manuscripts. This outstanding achievement is a testament to the leadership, collaboration and commitment of our clinical, science and academic leaders.

Congratulations and thank you for your commitment to help end cancer.
