Bangalore, Apr 25 (IBNS): Infosys Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Infosys, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tata Memorial Centre (TMC) with the objective of developing a team of clinician-scientists proficient in translational laboratory research who will be able to bring their cross-disciplinary capabilities to bear on topical questions of cancer research in India.
According to the MoU, INR 5 Crore will be provided towards corpus funding of the Infosys Foundation Fellowships along with INR 40 Lakh towards the implementation of activities in 2016. 
 
A minimum of 2-5 young medical faculty members and oncology trainees of TMC will benefit from the endowment annually.

Through the agreement, the Foundation will partner with TMC to fulfill their shared long-term goal of creating a cadre of clinician-scientists who will be able to undertake locally relevant innovative clinical research that will result in feasible and cost-effective treatments of common and unique Indian cancers.
