NIH MERIT Award

Sunil Advani MD, Associate Professor and Director of Basic Science Research in the Center for Precision Radiation Medicine (CPRM), has been awarded a R37 MERIT (Method to Extend Research in Time) Award. The R37 MERIT Award provides early stage investigators with extended grant funding, extending the 5 years of funding of his recent R01 focused on PAK-CRAF signaling to 7 years! An exciting thing is that one doesn’t apply for a MERIT Award. Instead, the NIH looks over highly scored early stage investigator R-01’s and selects a few for extended funding. It is an incredible honor and achievement!
