MARK YOUR CALENDARS– Dr. Volker Diehl Visit/ Special Lectures
Volker Diehl, MD from the University of Koln, Germany will be visiting Taussig Cancer Institute November 30 and December 1 in advance of the ASH meeting. As you probably know, Dr Diehl is a major international figure in Hodgkin lymphoma, has directed the German Hodgkin Lymphoma Study group for more than 15 years, and has been responsible for major advances in this disease, including the International Prognostic System for HL and the BEACOPP regimen.
On December 1, Dr. Diehl will give two lectures. The first will be on Advances in the management of Hodgkin Lymphoma: the German Experience, at 8:00 am in R3-002/003 at the Cleveland Clinic. At 1:00 pm, he will present, Hodgkin Lymphoma: A Never Ending Exciting Story of Translational Research Since 1832, in R4-013 at the Cleveland Clinic.
Dr. Diehl will also be available for meetings November 30 and December 1. If anyone is interested in meeting with him during that time, please send your availability to Aimee Drury (email@example.com) and Dr. John Sweetenham (firstname.lastname@example.org).
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– CSCRM Request for Proposals
The Center for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (CSCRM) has issued an RFP for pilot projects for this coming year. The goal of this pilot funding is to to provide seed money for new research ideas with priority given to projects that bring new researchers into the stem cell arena or provide funding for a "new" research area (not additional support for an existing project). Projects must have a clinical and/or commercial direction though it may be more rudimentary than for a fully developed project. The "fourth" $50K slot will be divided among the CWRU/CCF/UH tech transfer offices (TTO) to apply to stem cell projects that the TTOs recommend would significantly be assisted (in the IP/commercialization effort) by a small increment of data.
Deadline: November 23
