Clinical trials are essential for moving new treatments from the laboratory to the clinic. A new video about the phases of clinical trials explains what’s involved in the three main steps used to test new cancer treatments.
Barnett S. Kramer, M.D., M.P.H., director of NCI’s Division of Cancer Prevention (DCP), describes the science of cancer prevention in a new video. DCP administers a broad spectrum of research that spans basic, preclinical, laboratory research, supportive and palliative care research, early detection, and randomized controlled clinical trials.
Last October, Kathy J. Helzlsouer, M.D., M.H.S., joined NCI’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences as associate director of the Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP). In a video interview, Dr. Helzlsouer speaks about her background in oncology and epidemiology, the people and experiences that drive her passion for cancer research, and her ideas about future directions for EGRP.
A new Spotlight on Scientists video features NCI Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program alumna Ashley Felix, Ph.D., M.P.H., who talks about her transition from being a pre-med student to an epidemiologist. Dr. Felix’s research focuses on studying risk factors for cancer.
CCR has also launched a new website for the NIH Pediatric and Wildtype GIST Clinic. NCI and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development are collaborating to sponsor the next clinic in June 2016. You can learn more about pediatric gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), as well as register for the June clinic, on the new website.
President’s Cancer Panel Launches New Website
The President’s Cancer Panel launched its new website on January 12. Visit the site to learn how the panel advises the president on the National Cancer Program.
NCI Google Hangout on Precision Medicine Clinical Trials
NCI has published its Budget Fact Book for 2014. The Budget Fact Book provides a summary of how NCI distributed its fiscal year 2014 $4.9 billion budget among its research programs; it also describes NCI funding policies related to research grant awards.
NCI Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer Plan and Report
NCI’s Office of Cancer Nanotechnology Research (OCNR) has released its 2015 Cancer Nanotechnology Plan, which gives OCNR’s strategic vision of the field's current state and its potential future.
OCNR has also released the 2010-2015 Alliance Phase II Program Summary, which highlights the scientific and translational advances generated by the NCI Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer during the previous 5-year funding period.
NCI Genomic Data Commons
Learn about the NCI Genomic Data Commons (GDC), a unified knowledge base being established by NCI’s Center for Cancer Genomics. The GDC will centralize and standardize cancer genomics datasets and associated clinical data into one location that any researcher may access. The database will promote sharing of data between researchers and facilitate precision medicine in oncology.
Cryo-EM Study Visualizes Drug Action
A new NCI study using cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) shows how potential drugs could inhibit cancer. An image generated by the study of an important protein target (p97) for cancer therapies trapped in an inactive state by a new inhibitor is now available on NCI Visuals Online for public domain download and use.
New NCI Twitter Feeds
Acting NCI Director Dr. Doug Lowy has launched his own Twitter feed: @NCIDrDougExit Disclaimer. Follow him to get his perspective on cancer research and issues important to NCI.
NCI’s Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis (DCTD) and NCI’s Center for Cancer Research (CCR) are now on Twitter, as well.
DCTD facilitates clinical application of new agents, biomarkers, imaging tests, and other therapeutic interventions (radiation, surgery, immunotherapy) and expedites their initial and subsequent large-scale testing in patients. Follow DCTD @NCItreatmentExit Disclaimer.
