MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR–New Initiatives for the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center
I would like to follow up on a number of topics that emerged from our July 10-11 retreat. At individual sessions and during the executive session that followed, the Cancer Center leadership reviewed a number of opportunities to prioritize over the next few months. I would like to share this list with you.
Recruitment of the Associate Director for Basic Research
Drug Discovery and Development
There are also active shared resources at a number of other cancer centers. The centers we are currently discussing potential for collaborations with Drs. John Lazo at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Center, Andre Gudkov at Roswell Cancer Institute, Milton Brown at Georgetown, as well as expanding a current collaboration led by Sandy Markowitz with the drug high throughput screening facility at UT Southwestern. We are also investigating a potential interaction with the drug screening program at the University of Cincinnati. We will shortly provide contact information for the core facilities at each of these institutions. Meanwhile, we plan to expand our capabilities in cell based screening efforts, currently ongoing in Dr. David Wald's laboratory and in the Small Molecule Screening Core at Lerner Research Institute.

FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– Avon Foundation Breast Care Fund
The Avon Foundation Breast Care Fund (AFBCF) is accepting applications for 2010 funding. The mission of the AFBCF is to link medically underserved women to breast health education and screening services. Medically underserved women need targeted, customized approaches to enable them to obtain regular mammograms and clinical breast exams. Successful programs have: culturally-competent educational strategies; dedicated staff with specialized language and communications skills; and participation from members of the targeted community who can reach women where they live, work and worship, and who offer personalized assistance to women for whom it is often difficult to access health care.
Application Deadline: August 28
For more information, please click here.
If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please email email@example.com ASAP, as only one application per institution is allowed.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS– Case Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics Symposium
The Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics is proud to present the symposium, "Understanding Protein Complexes, Networks and the Interactome", on Monday, October 19. This event will be held in the Wolstein Research Building Auditorium 1413. For this symposium, the Center has invited speakers from distinguished institutions to discuss current developments and applications of computational and wet-lab approaches toward interactome mapping.
