Date:10/3/2011

those who want to make the world a better place and the Campaign for Cancer Prevention is one of our most shining examples."      

The focus of the research projects ranges from the connection between cholesterol levels and risk for ovarian cancer to identifying blood markers to assist in the early detection of breast cancer.  The final eight initiatives were culled from an institutional-wide call for proposals and chosen based on researcher credentials and outstanding potential of cancer prevention projects. Moreover, all CCP projects are designed to deliver results in 11 months or less to yield immediate impact for cancer prevention.  Projects include: 

  • Studying the relationship between black women and their vulnerability to lung cancer, led by Joanne M. Foody, MD
  • Deciphering the inner workings of a web-based tool to identify a patient's risk for cancer, led by Heather J. Baer, ScD
  • Researching whether blood tests can predict a woman's risk for developing breast cancer, led by Bruce S. Kristal, PhD
  • Generating the best recommendations for physical activity in order to reduce cancer risk, led by Eric Rimm, ScD
  • Identifying markers for early detection of ovarian cancer, led by Melina Shoni, MD
  • Research initiative plans to better understand the epigenetic aspects of breast cancer, led by Aditi Hazara, PhD, MPH
  • Investigating relationships between ovarian cancer, cholesterol levels and diets in order to establish dietary recommendations to decrease ovarian cancer risk, led by Shelley Tworoger, PhD
  • Investigating whether a marker in one's blood holds the secret to determining a person's risk for breast cancer, led by Shumin Zhang, MD, ScD

"Prevention and early detection hold the key to making major inroads against this devastating disease," noted Jo
