New Treatment Paradigms for Melanoma: A Case-based Discussion
Registration is open for New Treatment Paradigms for Melanoma: A Case-based Discussion, presented by the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center on Friday, October 18 at the Holiday Inn-Cleveland South. This conference is intended to provide melanoma caregivers a case-driven overview of current melanoma treatment paradigms. Case CCC faculty will discuss multidisciplinary approaches to the management of early and late stage melanoma.
The conference will cover the integration of new diagnostic and treatment technologies in care of the melanoma patient. In addition, the role of new targeted and immune therapies in the melanoma treatment as well as management of associated novel toxicities will be reviewed. A case-based discussion format will provide the opportunity audience interaction with the course faculty. CME credit is available.
Graft-versus-Host Disease (GvHD) National Symposium
Registration today the Graft-versus-Host Disease (GvHD) National Symposium, Friday, November 1 at the Embassy Suites Cleveland. This conference is intended to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of GvHD, review cutting edge approaches to prevention and treatment, and highlight and promote research to further our understanding of its cause. The symposium will have two tracks: a scientifically rigorous one for physicians and practitioners, and a survivor track that will focus on challenges faced by BMT recipients and their families. CME credit is available.
Conquer Cancer Foundation Advanced Clinical Research Award in Breast Cancer
The Conquer Cancer Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for the 2014 Advanced Clinical Research Award in Breast Cancer. This award is designed to fund mid-career investigators who are committed to clinical cancer research and who wish to conduct original breast cancer research not currently funded.
SU2C-Lustgarten Foundation Pancreatic Cancer Convergence Dream Team Translational Research Grant
The American Association for Cancer Research is now accepting submissions of ideas for the Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C)-Lustgarten Foundation Pancreatic Cancer Convergence Dream Team Translational Research Grant. The grant provides three years of funding for research projects that must include therapeutic interventions for pancreatic cancer and deliver near-term patient benefit through investigation by a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional convergence Dream Team of experts. The project must bring together biology (e.g. genomics, epigenetics, proteomics, and/or other biological fields) and at least one additional field of research such as physics, engineering, or immunology.
SU2C-Farrah Fawcett Foundation Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Translational Research Team Grant
The American Association for Cancer Research, on behalf of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, calls upon members of the cancer community to contribute their ideas to the groundbreaking Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C)-Farrah Fawcett Foundation Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Translational Research Team Grant. Ideas are invited for a multidisciplinary translational cancer research project that addresses critical problems in HPV-related cancers and that can deliver near-term patient benefit through investigation by a Team of two expert investigators. The selected grant will include a translational component, and have the potential for a significant impact for patients with HPV-related cancers.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation Innovation Awards
Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for Innovation Awards. These grants are designed to provide critical and significant seed funding for experienced investigators with a novel and promising approach to finding causes and cures for childhood cancers.
