James Graham Brown Cancer Center receives $10.1 million gift

The University of Louisville's James Graham Brown Cancer Center just received $10.1 million gift.

The National Institutes of Health gave the center the money to explore new ways to treat and prevent cancer.

Donald Miller, director of the Brown Cancer Center, says its commitment is to develop treatments.  He hopes two or three drugs will come out of this program and to into clinical trials right here in Louisville.

The money is a renewal of an $11 million NIH grant awarded to the center in 2003 for biomedical research.

Like the previous grant, the renewal will give young scientists an opportunity to discover new treatments and develop them through government funding.
