Stanislav Piletsky

Imperial College London, United Kingdom

"I am honoured to be awarded the 2021 Proteintech AACR Research Grant. This funding will go towards the development of new cancer treatments using molecularly imprinted polymers. I'd like to thank Proteintech for their generosity in supporting such projects, and hope to collaborate with them in the future"

The Award

For years, Proteintech has supported young scientists for their career development through travel grants to the AACR annual meeting. Despite the virtual status of the conference, we still want to highlight and support exciting research.

This year, we will be offering 2 x $1000 (or currency equivalent) grants towards cancer research instead of travel.

The grant is open to PhD students, lab managers and post-docs at university or research institutions in Europe, United Kingdom, Canada and North America and awards $1000 to two researchers for use towards their research.
