The COBRE Center for Cancer Research Development (CCRD) at Rhode Island Hospital has recently awarded more than $250,000 to local junior investigators dedicated to cancer research.

An integral component of the COBRE CCRD is the Pilot Project Program that supports outstanding junior investigators. The program, directed by Jennifer Sanders, PhD and Philip Gruppuso, MD, takes full advantage of the collaborative relationship between Rhode Island Hospital, Brown University and the University of Rhode Island.
