MARK YOUR CALENDARSOffice of Cancer Centers Learning Series Webinar: DCTD's Redesign of the Early Experimental Therapeutics Program
The NCI CTEP Early Experimental Therapeutics program is being redesigned to address new challenges and opportunities in cancer drug development. To learn about this exciting redesign, join NCI's Office of Cancer Centers for a FREE webinar Thursday, July 26 from 2-3:30 pm.
Drug development now requires new approaches, including the full molecular characterization of patients' tumors. To address these new challenges and opportunities, the NCI has initiated a full redesign of its early experimental therapeutics program, encompassing phase 0 through phase 2. Featured speaker Dr. S. Percy Ivy, Associate Chief of the Investigational Drug Branch of CTEP, will discuss how the program will be structured to employ a team science approach and define a best path forward to develop new drugs.
ANNOUNCEMENTSDOD Consultant Event
Last month, Bede Littman, Director of the School of Medicine Office of Strategic Initiatives, met with the Program Leaders to present an overview of her office and various available resources/functions that can be helpful to members, such as
The Office of Strategic Initiatives has a relationship with Martin, Blanke & Associates, LLC, a consulting firm in Washington, DC that is available to assist with Department of Defense (DOD) inquires and submissions. The Office is coordinating a DOD grant submission event for Cancer Center members on Thursday, August 2 where consultants from Martin, Blanke & Associates, LLC will be on campus for 20 thirty-minute sessions to offer review and feedback of DOD one-pagers.
Interested investigators should submit a one-pager to Gillian Todd at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, July 17. Please use the CWRU SOM one-pager template.
In your cover email, please indicate:
Investigators selected to participate in this event will be notified by Tuesday, July 24. Please note this event is restricted to CWRU faculty, including members with CCLCM appointments. These one-on-one meetings are not required, but can be very helpful.
If you are unavailable on August 2 but are interested in a one-on-one session, please forward your one-pager with a note indicating your interest in participating in a future session. Depending on the amount of interest shown, we may set up future information sessions with the consultants. As deemed appropriate, prepared one-pagers are shared with relevant DOD agencies to promote the work of investigators at CWRU SOM, and to gauge the DOD's interest.
Please remember, support is available throughout the year through the SOM Office of Strategic Initiatives. For more information, please contact: Elizabeth 'Bede' Littman (216.368.1841, email@example.com) or Irene Shaland (216.368.4970, firstname.lastname@example.org).
