CASE CCC IN THE NEWS
Will There be Enough Family Care Doctors to Treat Newly Insured?
In the Search for Cancer Drugs, Mice Get New Role
Drs. Mellar Davis and Ram Ganapathi were recently awarded pilot funding to support studies conducted through CTSC Core Facilities.
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– CTSC Pilot Funds
The Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative (CTSC) announces its yearly competition for pilot funding. Up to $75,000 will be available to provide seed money to basic and clinical faculty that will lead to efficient use of resources and support of inter-institutional, clinical translational research in the City of Cleveland.
Deadline: May 1
FUNDING OPPORTUNITY– DOD BCRP Concept Award
The DOD is accepting applications for the BCRP Concept Award, which supports the exploration of a highly innovative new concept or untested theory that addresses an important problem relevant to breast cancer. The Concept Award is not intended to support a logical progression of an already established research project, but instead supports high-risk studies that have the potential to reveal entirely new avenues for investigation.
Pre-Application Deadline: May 12
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS– Cancer Research Training Award
The NCI is pleased to request applications from qualified candidates for a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA). The CRTA provides an outstanding opportunity for an individual with a strong interest in understanding how cancer care and cancer control activities influence patterns of care and trends in cancer, specifically in the fields of cancer screening and the use of biomarkers in population-based research. The CRTA appointment is a one- or two-year position with the Applied Research Program, Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences of the NCI.
This position provides an exciting and unique opportunity to work with leaders in the fields of diet, weight, and physical activity related to cancer and other chronic diseases. The position will allow contact with a large number of scientists representing disciplines of epidemiology, nutritionists, assessment, clinicians, policy researchers, and other cross-cutting arenas of application.
The position is opened until filled.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS– Mt. Sinai Sidney H. Sachs, MD Surgical Oncology Lectureship
The Mt. Sinai Sidney H. Sachs, MD Surgical Oncology Lectureship is scheduled for Friday, April 30 from 3-5 pm in WRB 1413. Lee M. Ellis, MD, Professor of Surgery and Cancer Biology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center will present, "Intercellular Crosstalk and Chemoresistance in the Tumor Microenvironment". Reception to follow. Presented by the Case CCC, Ireland Cancer Center, Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation, and Case Department of Surgery.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS– Women's Cancer: Screening and Prevention in 2010
Registration is open for the Case CCC Symposium, Women's Cancer: Screening and Prevention in 2010, May 7 at the Hilton Cleveland East in Beachwood.
Course Overview: Early detection of cancer saves lives. Controversy exists regarding guidelines for cancer screening in women. Mammograms are not consistently obtained and women do not participate in colon cancer screening as frequently as men. Educating practitioners to the benefits of breast, cervical, endometrial, and colorectal cancer screening could help promote health practices. The indications for genetic testing for breast and ovarian cancer susceptibility will be discussed. While practitioners generally understand the harms and benefits of postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy, the specific outcomes with respect to breast and uterine cancer merit further exploration. Discussion of health choices (weight-reduction surgery, prophylactic mastectomy, smoking cessation) and their role in cancer prevention will aid practitioners in guiding patients.
CME credits are available.
