2013 The Scott Hamilton CARES Initiative Grant Program Recipients
The following investigators were recipients of the 2013 The Scott Hamilton CARES Initiative grant program. All four were recognized at the 13th annual An Evening with Scott Hamilton and Friends on Saturday, November 3. Recipients and their research studies are as follows (cancer center members are indicated in bold):
Recipients, based on scientific merit, were determined by peer reviewers from the Taussig Cancer Institute and Lerner Research Institute. As a key mission of The Scott Hamilton CARES Initiative, the research grant funding program seeks to support innovative cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. The CARES grant program is funded through the annual ice show and gala.
James S. McDonnell Foundation Collaborative Activity Awards
The James S. McDonnell Foundation offers Collaborative Activity Awards to initiate interdisciplinary discussions on problems or issues, to help launch interdisciplinary research networks, or to fund communities of researchers/practitioners dedicated to developing new methods, tools, and applications of basic research to applied problems.
In each case the focus of the collaborative activity must meet the program guidelines for one of the following program areas:

So You Want To Do Comparative Effectiveness Research? The Nuts and Bolts of CER
Registration is open for So You Want To Do Comparative Effectiveness Research? The Nuts and Bolts of CER, to be held Friday, December 14 in the WRB Auditorium. This half-day symposium will help heighten the understanding of comparative effectiveness research (CER), identify strategies to evaluate competing treatments and highlight the various research design methods available to perform CER. The course will be taught at an introductory level and is designed to provide resources for investigators to pursue future research projects. There is $25 registration fee, though this fee is waived for trainees, scholars, and K awardees.
CER is defined as the direct comparison of existing health care interventions to determine which work best for which patients and which pose the greatest benefits and harms. CER is receiving increasing importance nationally and internationally as a priority area of investigation and has led to the establishment of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
