The 13th International Symposium on Anti-Angiogenic Therapy: Recent Advances and Future Directions in Basic and Clinical Cancer Research
The 13th International Symposium on Anti-Angiogenic Therapy: Recent Advances and Future Directions in Basic and Clinical Cancer Research will be held February 3–5 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla in San Diego, California. This annual state-of-the-art symposium is designed to continue the dialogue and interaction between research and clinical investigators by reviewing the current scientific understanding of vascular biology and angiogenesis. In addition, this symposium provides a forum for presenting the most current preclinical and clinical data on emerging anti-angiogenic agents and regimens. Strategies that inhibit angiogenesis in colorectal, breast, lung, esophageal, gastric, genitourinary, neuroendocrine, central nervous system, hepatocellular and gynecologic malignancies will be discussed. In addition, biomarkers and resistance pathways will be addressed and controversies in the field will be highlighted.
In addition to participating in two panel sessions, Dr. Brian Rini is scheduled to present Anti-Angiogenic Therapy for the Treatment of Renal Cell Carcinoma.
Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation Macy Faculty Scholars Program
The Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation recently announced its new Macy Faculty Scholars program. This program is designed to identify and nurture the careers of educational innovators in medicine and nursing. Five awards ($100,000 plus fringe) will be granted per year every two years and only ONE faculty member can be nominated per school. Dean Davis would like to have an applicant from the School of Medicine. In order to be eligible, candidates must: 1) be a faculty member for more than five years in a United States accredited nursing school, allopathic or osteopathic medical school (MD or DO); 2) be nominated by the dean of the school; 3) have a faculty mentor who will advise the candidate on the candidate's educational innovation project and on his/her career development; and 4) be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or its territories. You must also have the approval of your Department Chair as 50% of your effort must be commitment to this program.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please submit the following materials to Carolyn Jenkins (email@example.com) by January 31 so the dean's office can select a single candidate for this award: 1) one-page letter summarizing career objectives; 2) a one page summary of the proposed innovation project; 4) paragraph with mentor's name and relationship; and 5) a copy of your updated CV.
Please review the programs contents to be certain that you meet all the conditions. The potential candidate will be notified no later than February 4.

Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Translational Research Program
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Translational Research Program (TRP) was established to encourage and provide support for new and novel clinical research. The goal of the program is to accelerate transfer of findings from the laboratory to clinical application. The program's purpose is to fund research that shows high promise for translating basic biomedical knowledge to prevention or new treatments and, ultimately, to prolong and enhance life.
Mandatory LOI Deadline: March 1
Lustgarten Foundation 2011 Innovator Program

National CENter for ReGenerAtive Medicine UnderGraduate StudEnt (ENGAGE) Summer Program
Applications are now being accepted for the National CENter for ReGenerAtive Medicine UnderGraduate StudEnt (ENGAGE) Summer Program. Now in its fourth year, the purpose of the ENGAGE program is to promote and support undergraduate student participation in research and creative projects within the field of stem cells and regenerative medicine. Proposed projects are expected to match the complexity of what is accepted by SOURCE and SPUR funding. This program is now open to all undergraduate students, not just CWRU students. Mentors must be full NCRM members in order to qualify for funding. Projects that provide matching funds and reduce the overall cost of the student will be given higher consideration.
Deadline: March 31
NASA Space Radiation Summer School
Applications are now being accepted for the NASA Space Radiation Summer School, June 6–24. This program is designed for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty with an interest in radiation biology. Both foreign nationals and US citizens may apply to the program. All selected students must satisfy Brookhaven National Laboratory safety and security requirements in order to be admitted. In addition, due to the intense nature of the three-week course, selected students must possess oral and written proficiency in the English language.
Deadline: February 13
New cancer research protocols requiring IRB review will be submitted, reviewed and stored electronically using the Case Cancer IRB electronic, web-based submission and review database provided by iMedRIS™ Data Corporation.
Part 4 (How to Respond to Stipulations) and Part 5 (How to submit Amendments) of the iMedRIS™ training sessions will be offered January through February. All interactive training will be accessible online using Adobe Acrobat Connect and telephone conference line and can be accessed at personal workstations.
