Cancer Center Seminar Series: Signaling Pathways in Cell Fate Decisions During Stress
Friday, January 13
Please join us Friday, January 13 for the next Cancer Center Seminar Series where Dr. Maria Hatzoglou will present Signaling Pathways in Cell Fate Decisions During Stress.
Dr. Hatzoglou is Professor of Nutrition at Case Western Reserve University. She is an expert on cellular responses to stress. She has identified many of the key players in this process and elucidated their complex interactions. Such stress responses and their regulation are one of the keys to determining the survival of cancer cells, a major interest of a number of cancer researchers in the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Tumor Microenvironment Monthly Discussions
At least four Cancer Center Programs- Cancer Cell Signaling, GU Malignancies, Developmental Therapeutics, and Cancer Imaging- have themes or aims related to the tumor microenvironment: angiogenesis and endothelial cells, immune effectors and immunotherapy, and the matrix, adhesion and stroma. To further stimulate and highlight individual investigator expertise across the programs and institutions, Case CCC program leaders are planning a monthly series of informal, late afternoon presentations on emerging research findings, accompanied by wine and cheese. We hope that these talks will lead eventually to basic and/or collaborative grants or translational projects, and maybe down the road enough commonality to plan towards P01s in the topic areas of focus.
The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 11 at 5 pm in R3-027 at the Cleveland Clinic, and is sponsored by the GU Malignancies and Developmental Therapeutics Programs in conjunction with the Cleveland Clinic Angiogenesis Center. Talks will be 20-25 minutes followed by discussion. Presentations will focus on endothelial cells and angiogenesis:
Validated parking will be available in the Euclid and 91st garage a block up the street.
Cancer Cell Signaling Program Retreat
Mark your calendars for the Cancer Cell Signaling Program Retreat, February 29 from 6-8 at the College Club. The agenda will focus on the micro-environment in breast cancer, including dinner presentations by Dr. Mike Ostrowski from The Ohio State University and CCC Associate Director for Basic Research, Dr. Ruth Keri. Please RSVP to Tracy Rehl.
NCI Second Symposium on Translational Genomics
Registration is now open for the Second Symposium on Translational Genomics, March 15-16 at the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland. Presented by the NCI Center of Excellence in Integrative Cancer Biology and Genomics, this seminar will provide a dedicated forum for the advancement, implementation, and exchange of information on noncoding RNAs, next generation sequencing, and epigenomics and genetic variation for translation into clinical practice, with the ultimate goal to improve the health of patients with cancer.
NIH Shared Instrumentation Grant Program
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to continue the competitive National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) Shared Instrumentation Grant (SIG) Program. The objective of the program is to make available to institutions expensive research instruments that can only be justified on a shared-use basis and that are needed for NIH-supported projects in basic, translational or clinical areas. The SIG program provides funds to purchase or upgrade a single item of expensive, specialized, commercially available instrumentation or an integrated instrument system. There is no limit on the number of applications an institution may submit provided the applications are for different types of equipment.
Leukemia Research Foundation
The Leukemia Research Foundation is currently accepting applications for New Investigator Grants, open to individuals beginning to establish their own laboratories that are no longer under the tutelage of a senior scientist mentor.
American Legacy Foundation Legacy Tobacco Industry Documents Award Program
The American Legacy Foundation is pleased to announce the Legacy Tobacco Industry Documents Award program, which is comprised of the Sybil G. Jacobs Award for Outstanding Use of Tobacco Industry Documents and the Christine O. Gregoire Youth/Young Adult Award for Outstanding Use of Tobacco Industry Documents. These awards recognize individuals who have made a significant and well-recognized contribution to the health of the public in the recent past through use of tobacco documents. The award honors innovation in the use and application of tobacco industry documents to further the goals of tobacco prevention and control in order to help build a world where young people reject tobacco and anyone can quit. Those nominated should be individuals who have made a notable impact through innovative use of tobacco industry documents as applied to research, policy, or advocacy.
