Dr. Tanya Stoyanova Received a NCI R01/R37 MERIT Award

Tanya Stoyanova, PhD, and Assistant Professor of Radiology, received a NIH/NCI R01/R37 MERIT Award for her proposal entitled: "Elucidating the Role of Trop2 in Prostate Cancer".

The Method to Extend Research in Time (MERIT)(R37) Award provides longer term grant support to Early Stage Investigators (ESIs) beginning with new, competing awards issued in FY 2018. Eligible investigators may obtain up to seven years of support in two segments:  an initial award of up to five years and an opportunity for an extension of up to two additional years, based on an expedited NCI review of the accomplishments during the initial funding segment.

Congratulation, Dr. Stoyanova!
