The review course will summarize the highlights of the 2007 SABCS, with a focus on the clinical implications of the new information presented at this meeting.
Medical oncologists, breast surgeons, radiation oncologists, and other health care providers with an interest in the management of patients with breast cancer should attend this course.
For more information and to register, please click here.
There is no registration fee, but advanced registration is required. To register after February 11, please call (216) 444-7924.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS – CSCRM Pluripotency Meeting
On January 18th, the CSCRM circulated a query to determine your interest in meeting regarding pluripotency vectors, etc. There seems to be a considerable amount of interest. The first meeting to discuss this initiative will be at noon on Monday, February 11, in the Wolstein Board Room 2-505. Please plan to attend this meeting even if your interest was to be involved in only a portion of the initiative.
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY – William Bingham Foundation
The William Bingham Foundation, which makes grants to nonprofit organizations in Cleveland and other areas across the United States, is accepting applications for its 2008 funding priority, which is to assist organizations working to increase access to health care and services for low-income breast cancer patients, particularly in Cleveland, Ohio, and Washington, D.C. This focus is in effect only for 2008.
Qualifying organizations will have no prior relationship with the William Bingham Foundation, and projects should seek to improve healthcare access through public education, diagnosis, treatment, and other means. Program activities can include breast cancer prevention and education programs, medical services for low-income women diagnosed with breast cancer, and support services for low-income breast cancer patients.
The maximum grant amount is $25,000. The deadline for applications is April 30For application instructions, click here.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITY – Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has joined in a national effort to advance the science of continuous quality improvement (CQI) research, and is currently seeking proposals that:
*develop methods, tools and standards for the design, conduct and reporting of CQI research and evaluations, including standardized typologies, definitions and measures of key concepts and consensus statements;
*demonstrate how the paradigms, methods and approaches from other disciplines can advance the science of CQI research;
*develop and test new theoretical models, conceptual frameworks and logic models to explain CQI initiatives;
*demonstrate how rapid-cycle "run-chart" or "PDSA-cycle" data can be used to rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of CQI interventions implemented to address key quality challenges; and/or
*develop methods to systematically capture implementation context information.
Proposals that address other issues that will advance the science of CQI research as it applies to health and health care will also be accepted.
An informational applicant conference call will be held on February 6 to provide interested applicants an overview of this solicitation and offer an opportunity to ask questions. To register for this call, click here.
Deadline for proposals: March 14For more information, please click here.
