MIOCA Makes $150,000 available to Ovarian Cancer Researchers in Michigan
November 15, 2019
MIOCA has released the application for the 2020 Geri Fournier Research Grants. Through this grant program, MIOCA supports researchers within the state of Michigan who are conducting important work to improve the quality of lives and treatment for women with ovarian cancer. In 2019, MIOCA reached an important milestone in its effort to save lives. Since it started giving grants in 2014, MIOCA has now awarded over a half-million dollars to researchers in Michigan who are finding new ways to improve the early detection and treatment of ovarian cancer. “Each and every research project we fund has the potential to result in improved understanding of the disease that will hopefully transform lives for women across Michigan and beyond,” said Pam Dahlmann, MIOCA Co-Founder and President. The award, named for Pam’s mother who helped establish MIOCA before her death from ovarian cancer in 2011, was created to recognize the critical research happening right here, in our state, which is often underfunded.
