Congratulations to ourformer KL2 Scholar Josephine A. Taverna, MD and her recent clinical trial success! Keep up the great work!
Researchers at Mays Cancer Center at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UT Health San Antonio) have identified protein markers that could signal for early development of metastatic lung cancer, providing possibilities for new treatment.
The findings already have led to a five-year, $1.6 million grant from the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health that will pave the way for a clinical trial next year for patients with advanced lung cancer. The research is detailed in a new article in Cell Reports, a peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing research papers across a broad range of disciplines within the life sciences.
“For the trial, we will be looking to recruit patients with lung adenocarcinoma, the most common primary lung cancer in the United States, and particularly those with a refractory condition for which treatment hasn’t been effective,” said Josephine A. Taverna, MD, a faculty member in hematology and oncology with Mays Cancer Center and principal investigator of the NCI/NIH grant.

Town Halls for Upcoming Research Funding Opportunities Register Now
PCORI is hosting several virtual town halls in January for you to learn more about the research PCORI Funding Announcements (PFAs) opening Jan. 9, 2024. Join us to hear an in-depth review of the PFAs and learn more about submitting responsive Letters of Intent (LOIs). Take advantage of this opportunity to make your next LOI submission the best it can be!
F-Troop is a hands-on writing workshop that targets pre- and postdoctoral trainees who are preparing an application for a fellowship award (e.g., F30, F31, or F32). Equivalent fellowship applications to other funding agencies are also encompassed by this program. This program is virtual and occurs every Wednesday from 5:00PM-7:00PM beginning January 10, 2024.
