XAVIER UNIVERSITY OF LOUISIANA
Xavier's RCMI Cancer Research Program. The purpose of this supplement is to consolidate the three research cores of Xavier University's Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI) program into one centralized location. As part of an ongoing university commitment to improve and expand fundamental biomedical research, this proposal requests funds to renovate approx 3,300 sq ft of biomedical research space. Such centralization will enhance research productivity by facilitating close linkages between the core operations and staff to provide comprehensive support for individual research projects that utilize all three cores.
