The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is excited to announce that it is partnering with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in supporting a 2011 Young Investigator Award in Cholangiocarcinoma Research.

The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is committing $50,000 for funding a promising investigator in his/her early career cholangiocarcinoma research. This commitment enabled The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation to designate selection criteria that assures the money is directed to an early career investigator focused on research in cholangiocarcinoma. The ASCO Cancer Foundation Grants Selection Committee determines the recipient of the 2011 Young Investigator Award in Cholangiocarcinoma Research, evaluating the scientific merit of the Young Investigator Award applications using a two-part peer-review process.
