Registration is open for the 2013 Case CCC Annual Scientific Retreat, July 11-12. The evening of July 11 will be held at the Wolstein Research Building and will feature a keynote address by Kenna Shaw from The Cancer Genome Atlas, followed by a cocktail reception and core facility posters. The retreat will continue on Friday, July 12 at Corporate College East. The day will be filled with interesting scientific sessions and lunchtime discussion tables. The day will wind down with a student poster session and cocktail reception. All attendees must pre-register.
Call for Abstracts
All graduate students, postdocs and fellows conducting cancer research are invited to submit abstracts for poster presentations at the Retreat, the evening of July 12.

Dr. Madabhushi Awarded Breast Cancer Grant from Ohio Third Frontier
Dr. Anant Madabhushi has been awarded a one-year, $50,000 Phase 1 Technology Validation grant from the Ohio Third Frontier program for his project, Image Based Risk Score Predictor of Treatment Response from ER+ Breast Cancers. As part of this project, Dr. Madabhushi and his team will be developing advanced image analytic methods for distinguishing more and less aggressive estrogen receptor positive breast cancers and thus identifying which patients should receive adjuvant chemotherapy and which patients should not. Drs. Hannah Gilmore and Lyndsay Harris will serve as the clinical collaborators on this project.
CTSC Explorys Collaborative Pilot
Applications are currently being accepted by the Clinical & Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) for Explorys Collaborative Pilot funding. The purpose of this pilot funding opportunity is to innovate and collaborate with Explorys informatics personnel to develop novel or enhance existing approaches for expanding the use of BIG DATA in organizing, integrating, searching, analyzing, or visualizing health care data. Successful applications will involve two or more disciplines, with a focus on building innovative clinical research informatics, aligned with a key Explorys focus area as listed above and allocate no more than a third of the budget on supporting development efforts or analysis by Explorys.
Deadline: August 1
Uniting Against Lung Cancer
Uniting Against Lung Cancer is accepting applications for its Legacy Program. The Foundation is prioritizing novel ideas with potential to make a significant impact on current treatment of lung cancer and patient survival, adding years rather than months. High priority has been placed on funding research that has a clear path to clinical application and/or therapeutic development. Proposals for basic science are greatly aided by a forward-looking research plan outlining clinical potential. Investigators at all levels, including Postdoctoral and Clinical Fellows, will be funded through the Legacy Program and are encouraged to apply.
Deadline: August 14
Department of Defense Prostate Cancer Research Program
