Topic: ACS Grant for my Oncologist

http://www.urmc.rochester.edu/news/stor … fm?id=3867

My oncologist, Aram Hezel,, received a $750,000 grant to support his research into ICC and pancreatic cancer in its early stages to try and facilitate early detection.

His research is discussed in the second half of the article.

Re: ACS Grant for my Oncologist

I know.  Can you imagine the impact that early detection would have on people on this site?  I am very happy that this type of research is going on.  Not only is he a great doctor and researcher, he is actually a very very nice man.

Re: ACS Grant for my Oncologist

Great link, Randi. Yes, early detection is the key, as it then transfers to the appropriate treatments too.  In this day of the sequester we are thrilled to see any monies dedicated to this disease.
