Proposal Submission

Dr. Nat Pernick is accepting applications for a single, nonrenewable grant of up to $10,000 for a research study of possible intermediate states for glioblastoma detectable by molecular methods. As described at Arch Pathol Lab Med 2018;142:558, complexity theory suggests that these states likely exist, even if there is no histologic evidence. Applicants will be required to publish their findings, whether positive or negative.

Applicants are invited to submit application materials describing the proposed research study with the objective of "Identifying possible intermediate states for glioblastoma using molecular methods" as outlined below. The applications will be reviewed and scored by a committee.
