Thomas A. and Lorraine M. Rosenberg Award for Translational Cancer Research
From the Rosenberg Family and Froedtert Hospital Foundation • $80,000 over 2 years
The Rosenberg Award for Translational Cancer Research is a NEW award being made in collaboration with the Froedtert Hospital Foundation. The Rosenberg Award will support translational cancer research in any type of cancer, but the focus must be on the translation of basic research findings to a clinically relevant setting. The Rosenberg Award is $80,000 over two years. Only one award will be made.

Restrictions on Multiple Awards
The MCW Cancer Center and scientific review boards have adopted a policy for recipients of past or current seed grant awards. At least one full year must pass from the end date of the project award and the start date of the next award. Any application must be for a new project and not for a continuation of previously funded work. The policy is specific to each award mechanism, so investigators can apply for a another Cancer Center grant if they received a grant award from a different mechanism within the last year.
