YOU FUNDED IT! Washington University medical oncologists at Siteman Cancer Center Ron Bose, MD, PhD, and Cynthia Ma, MD, PhD, along with their teams, are conducting research that may lead to better therapies for some breast cancer patients. They have been awarded a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to support such research. Drs. Ma & Bose received a 2012 and 2016 Pedal-funded grant (respectively) to fund this important research.
Funded in 2016 Principal Investigator: Jeffrey Bednarski, M.D., Ph.D. Goal: We have identified a novel mechanism that controls surface receptor signaling in immune cells. Our goals are to understand how this signaling circuit is coordinated to direct early B cell development and how corruption of this pathway leads to leukemia. We expect that these studies will provide important insights into the development of leukemia and will identify novel therapeutic targets in pediatric ALL.
Ryan C. Fields, MD, FACS, Pedal the Cause funded researcher, and Eva Hurst, MD went live on Facebook in May to discuss skin cancer and to answer common questions about prevention and treatment. Watch the recorded program here, and earn about the latest advances in skin cancer prevention, screening and treatment.
This year at Pedal the Cause, hundreds of stationary cyclists will take a spin in the Truly Spin Zone. A new sponsor for 2018, Truly supports PTC operations and will be providing refreshing “Spiked & Sparkling” beverages post-ride for both riders and spinners alike.
Spots are going fast! If you want to be part of the fun, there are still spots left in our first spin shift from 8-9 am.
