In Hawaii, a cancer research center has received two grants totaling 0,000 for research to be conducted on mesothelioma.
Dr. Haining Yang is one of five recipients of a 2 year 0,000 collar grant from the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF). On top of the MARF grant Yang has also received a 2 year 0,000 grant for the Hawaii Community Foundation’s Leahi Fund.
Money from the grant will go towards research in detecting mesothelioma in the earlier stages of the disease, as it is generally not detected until the ladder stages. Earlier detection could go a long way in helping scientists and researchers find a cure to the horrible disease.
