Frontier Science Foundation, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin, has received a $12 million grant from the National Cancer Institute.
The five-year grant will support Frontier as a data management, auditing and coordinating center for the Cancer Prevention Clinical Trials Network of the United States. The network performs early-phase clinical trials to find safe and effective ways to prevent cancer.
The University of Wisconsin will lend scientific leadership with clinical trials and help coordinate administrative and logistic issues. The data management, auditing and coordinating center is located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Frontier has 240 employees at its Maple Road headquarters in Amherst. It was founded in 1975.
