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, 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.

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.
