Recipients will receive $50,000 per year for three years, with potential for additional support
Fourteen University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center researchers will have the opportunity and freedom to pursue new directions in their work. These faculty members comprise the inaugural class of Rogel Scholars, a select designation with research support funded as part of a $150 million commitment from Richard and Susan Rogel.
“We are excited to move forward with this first initiative funded by Rich and Susan Rogel’s generous gift. The Rogel Scholars program will provide the kind of support that allows our exceptional researchers the intellectual freedom to take risks and develop new and innovative approaches,” says Eric R. Fearon, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Rogel Cancer Center.
Each Rogel Scholar will receive $50,000 per year for three years, with potential for additional support.
