A. David Mazzone Research Awards Program
The A. David Mazzone Research Awards Program will fund a series of collaborative and innovative cancer research, career development, community outreach, and training projects to address a range of needs in prostate cancer and Lupron-treatable diseases.
Funding Agency: The funding agency for the A. David Mazzone Research Awards Program is a non-federal grant from the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Funding was derived from a pool of unclaimed funds from the settlement in 2004 of a class action suit against TAP Pharmaceuticals. The class action suit was related to marketing and sales practices for the prostate cancer drug Lupron.
Disparities Research Awards provide support for research projects aimed at understanding and eliminating racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in prostate cancer.
Community Outreach Research Awards are designed to help the Cancer Center play a greater role in facilitating engaged research participation or outreach activities among communities which are predominantly lower income and/or racially/ethnically diverse.
