Director's Message: Large Gift to Support AYA Cancer Program

On Monday, June 30, 2014 at the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum, Char and Chuck Fowler announced an incredible and forward-looking gift to the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center. They will provide $6.7M to establish the first adolescent and young adult cancer research program at an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center. This gift will complement the Angie Fowler Adolescent and Young Adult Institute at University Hospitals (UH) Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital.

We have the opportunity with this support to focus on the unknown questions around the biology of cancers in this age group. Rather than simply characterizing, we can get to the heart of the unknown etiology of these cancers – be they genetic or epigenetic, in-utero, toxin and hormonal exposures, DNA repair defects, immune dysfunction, and the like.

The Fowlers' support will allow us to emphasize developing teams of investigators to ask specific questions, linking our researchers in pediatrics with those throughout the Center. We will recruit needed expertise and build towards large program grants.[more]
