Major Grant for UCLA Cancer Research
February 9, 2023
Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) has announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will be granting a total of $619,045 to the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) for cancer detection and diagnosis research.
Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States, exceeded only by heart disease. It's a disease that has touched each and every American – and we must dedicate more federal resources to finding a cure. UCLA is an amazing, forward-thinking institution doing critical work in the field of cancer research, Lieu said.
The awarded funds will help UCLA fulfill their mission on developing treatments and early detection methods which can provide much needed hope to individuals affected by this deadly disease.
