Keystone Programs for Collaborative Discovery Launch at Fox Chase
Date:2/27/2008

PHILADELPHIA (Feb. 27, 2008) Fox Chase Cancer Center today announced the first four awards in an innovative new research program designed to bring the power of team-based science to bear on some of the most significant questions in cancer research. The Keystone Programs for Collaborative Discovery aim to accelerate the pace of medical progress against cancer.

At the heart of each of the four new Keystone Programs is a self-organized group of scientists, clinicians, and other research professionals seeking to integrate and focus their joined expertise on an important cancer problem. Selected after a competitive external peer-review process, each of the new Keystone Programs will receive at least $5 million in support over five years. The funding will come primarily from new sources, including Fox Chases Board of Directors and private philanthropy. Additional Keystone Programs are in development and will be added to the portfolio as soon as is feasible.

The Keystone Programs for Collaborative Discovery represent an unprecedented reimagining of Fox Chases research enterprise to seize the opportunities for progress against cancer unique to this moment in scientific history, says Michael V. Seiden, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of Fox Chase Cancer Center. In the post-genomic era, the next wave of major advances against disease will depend on self-assembled teams of researchers from different fields effectively pooling their skills and resources. The Keystone Programs were designed specifically to encourage and support the kind of creative team-based science at Fox Chase that will be required to solve the most challenging cancer problems.

The first four Keystone Programs for Collaborative Discovery are:

  • The Keystone Program in Personalized Risk and Prevention
    Goal: To discover molecular markers that predict cancer risk and to develop risk reduction strategies tailored to the profile and personal values of the individual
