Dr. Neal Meropol honored as American Society of Clinical Oncology Fellow
Date:5/16/2014

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) will honor Neal J. Meropol, MD, as a Fellow during the May 31 Opening Session of the 2014 ASCO Annual Meeting in Chicago. He will be one of 12 exceptional members to earn the designation of Fellow as a result of their extraordinary volunteer service, dedication and commitment to ASCO, the world's leading professional organization representing physicians who care for people with cancer. This recognition permits all 12 new ASCO Fellows to add the designation of "FASCO" to their credentials.

Meropol is Chief of the Division of Hematology and Oncology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals Case Medical Center. Meropol, also Associate Director for Clinical Research at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, is an internationally known colon cancer clinical researcher whose work spans the spectrum from cancer prevention to treatment. He also holds the Dr. Lester E. Coleman, Jr., Chair in Cancer Research and Therapeutics at the UH Seidman Cancer Center.

"I am truly honored by this unexpected recognition for work that I love, to improve the care of cancer patients worldwide," says Dr. Meropol.

Since joining ASCO in 1993, Meropol has taken on myriad positions throughout the years, including his 2013 election to ASCO's 18-member Board of Directors. The board is responsible for executing the mission, vision and strategic management of the organization and translating ASCO's mission into ongoing programs that attain the organization's goals.

Meropol also serves as a member of ASCO's Cost-of Care Task Force (2007-present), and previously served as Chair of the Cancer Research Committee (2010-2011), the Comparative Effectiveness Research Task Force (2009-2012), and as a member of the Cancer Communications Committee (2012-2013). Finally, he is Co-Chair for the ASCO/American Association of Cancer Research Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop this summer.

With more than 30,000 members, ASCO is committed to improving cancer care through scientific meetings, educational programs and peer-reviewed journals. ASCO is supported by its affiliate organization, the Conquer Cancer Foundation, which funds ground-breaking research and programs that make a tangible difference in the lives of people with cancer.

Meropol joined Case Western Reserve University and UH Case Medical Center in July 2009 as Associate Director for Clinical Research of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center and Section Chief of Medical Oncology from Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. He has an international reputation for his contributions in gastrointestinal malignancies, having conducted important studies of new treatments that have become standard of care and his research to improve methods for helping patients communicate with their doctors and make decisions about their care. Additionally, Meropol holds a variety of national positions that impact cancer care and healthcare policy, including co-chair of the NCI Gastrointestinal Steering Committee.

Meropol received his MD from Vanderbilt University. He completed a residency at UH Case Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and a fellowship in Hematology and Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania. He began his academic career at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and moved to Fox Chase Cancer Center in 1998. Meropol also completed a sabbatical at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
