Fox Chase Cancer Center's Ning Wong receives ASCO Cancer Foundation Career Development Award
Date:5/14/2008

The American Society of Clinical Oncology Cancer Foundation has selected Yu-Ning Wong, M.D., M.S.C.E., of Fox Chase Cancer Center, as one of 13 clinicians to receive a 2008 Career Development Award. Career Development Awards are presented to physicians in their second, third or fourth year as full-time faculty members in an academic setting. This award marks the third time ASCO has honored Wong's accomplishments since she began her professional career in oncology in 2002.

Wong is an attending physician in Fox Chase Cancer Center's department of medical oncology and holds a dual appointment as an associate member of the Center's divisions of medical science and population science. Her clinical interests include genitourinary malignancies such as kidney, bladder, prostate and testicular cancers. Wong also conducts health services research including cost-effectiveness analysis and research on treatment outcomes.

"I believe it is essential for physicians to understand how we care for cancer patients as a society," said Wong. "I study large national databases to measure the outcomes of men with prostate cancer, and I study outcomes of treatment for colon cancer and breast cancer. I enjoy these endeavors because they encourage me to think about problems from many different angles, an important aspect of being a medical oncologist."

Each of this year's Clinical Development Award winners will receive a three-year grant totaling $200,000 to establish an independent clinical cancer research program. This is the third award ASCO has given Wong. In 2005, she was awarded a Young Investigator Award, which provides grants to leading young clinical oncology researchers in a broad range of specialties worldwide. In 2004, she received an ASCO Merit Award given to fellows who submit high-quality abstracts selected for presentation at the ASCO Annual Meeting.
