MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Medal for Excellence in Health Science Innovation
Many of you have offered congratulations for the Thursday evening announcement that I, representing the Case CCC and the NCRM, had received the School of Medicine Case Western Reserve Medal for Excellence in Health Science Innovation for our efforts in clinical and translational research applications of basic discoveries and in coordinating these efforts across our institutions.
Needless to say I am humbled by the recognition, but also need to acknowledge that first and foremost, this recognition is totally dependent on the good deeds, inspiration, creativity, hard work and good will of the faculty members of the Case CCC and NCRM. We would not have gotten very far if the engagements had turned sour and the trust in the Centers had been lost. Many of you sacrifice your individual passions to pursue interests in collaboration and training that are far more difficult, if arguably not more satisfying, for the benefit of cancer and stem cell research. Collectively our joint efforts prove that the net impact of our research and training is far greater than the sum of its parts.
So, I really applaud all of you for allowing me to represent your interests to the institutions and to gain the recognition for the outstanding work that you do! Tell your friends and colleagues that we have something special here, and could use their engagement and support!
Stan Gerson, MD

This research must have a patient-oriented focus, including a clinical research study and/or translational research involving human subjects.
LOI Deadline: October 22
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Specialized Center of Research Program
Applications are currently being accepted for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Specialized Center of Research (SCOR) Program. This innovative program supports interdisciplinary research across at least three independent research projects that are integrated and supported by scientific core laboratories. Members of SCOR teams include some of the brightest medical specialists in the field of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma research-brought together to be part of a highly organized and inspired team approach to speed the discovery of new drugs and curative treatment.
Deadline: November 1
DeGregorio Foundation Award for Cancers of the Upper GI Tract
The DeGregorio Family Foundation for Gastric and Esophageal Cancer is pleased to announce its third annual funding opportunity for gastroesophageal malignancies. The Foundation seeks to promote and facilitate collaborative research on the pathogenesis, early diagnosis, and treatment of upper gastrointestinal malignancies. It supports high quality, innovative, and transformative translational research to improve the understanding of the biology of these diseases, identification of potential novel therapeutic targets, or in the development and evaluation of novel biomarkers for early diagnosis and treatment.
Deadline: November 5
Limited Submission: NIH Director's Early Independence Award
The NIH Director's Early Independence Awards provide an opportunity for exceptional junior scientists, who have already established a record of innovation and research productivity, to have an accelerated entry into an independent research career. It is also an opportunity for research intensive institutions to invigorate their research departments by recruiting outstanding, early career scientists. There is a limit of TWO candidates per institution.
