The SASCO Center offers Intra-Center Pilot Projects with cost-matched support from the UVA Comprehensive Cancer Center and UVA Office of the Vice-President for Research. Details on the Intra-Center Pilot Projects are released as an annual Request For Applications.


Request for applications to our Pilot Grant Program: The Systems Analysis of Stress-Adapted Cancer Organelles (SASCO) Center is a newly activated NCI-funded U54 Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBS) research center at UVA dedicated to studying the adaptations of cancer cell organelles to oncogenic stresses. SASCO investigators are organized into three research groups focusing on: 1) The chromosome passenger complex in breast cancer; 2) Mitochondrial stress in colon cancer; and 3) Abnormal macropinocytosis (methuosis) in glioblastoma. The research groups are supported by a high-content imaging and image analysis research core. For more information and to apply via InfoReady, click here.
