Date:11/15/2007

ve teams consisting of the best and brightest researchers and clinicians from across the country, and their results, we knew we had found the right partner to advance our mission."

Institutions that will participate in Canary Lung will include the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, Stanford University in Palo Alto, and the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. The Canary Science team is headed by Dr. Sanjiv "Sam" Gambhir, Professor of Radiology & Bioengineering and Director of the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford University. "For the past 10 years, my research has focused on molecular imaging with the goal of identifying cancer at its earliest stage possible," said Dr. Gambhir. "We are honored to add this team of top researchers to help those affected by lung cancer."

Background

Cancer strikes one in three women and one in two men in the United States, and more than 570,000 die from it each year. But survival rates improve dramatically when cancer is diagnosed early, and the disease is confined to the organ of origin. For example, since 1950, there has been a 70 percent decline in cervical cancer incidence and deaths thanks to a simple screening test, the Pap test. However, early detection diagnostic tools do not exist for many cancers, and those that do exist are not blood-based, such as the colonoscopy and mammogram.

About Canary Foundation

Canary Foundation is named after the "early detection" role canaries once played by alerting coal miners of hazardous fumes. The Foundation is the nation's only nonprofit organization devoted exclusively to the early detection of cancer. All administrative and overhead costs are underwritten by the Listwin Family Foundation, allowing 100 percent of contributions to go entirely to early detection research activities.
