OncLive® Teams Up with LSU’s Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center to Publicize Center's Innovative Cancer Research and Community-based Programs

OncLive® welcomed the Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center into its Strategic Alliance Partnership program today as the two organizations announced they would band together to share news about the Center’s advances in the fight against cancer. The Center is part of the new Louisiana State University’s Health Sciences Center recently built in downtown New Orleans.

With the new partnership, OncLive’s editorial and marketing groups will bring visibility to the LSU Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center as it works to lessen the burden that cancer imposes on its community, via research, clinical trials and studies of minority health and health disparities.

The Center’s initiatives include a minority-based clinical oncology program that helps members of the community participate in National Cancer Institute clinical trials. One of 13 such programs funded by the NCI, this initiative serves southern Louisiana and Mississippi. The Cancer Center has also united efforts with the first National Institutes of Health-funded Health Disparities Research Center in Louisiana, with the goal of helping underserved populations in New Orleans.

“We can’t wait to inform others about the important community-focused work being done by the LSU Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president of Intellisphere Oncology and Healthcare Specialty Group. “It’s essential, in waging the fight against cancer, to focus on what’s going on at the community level, and that’s exactly what the Center does.” Intellisphere, LLC, a leading provider of healthcare publishing, research and education, is a part of the Plainsboro, N.J.-based Michael J. Hennessy Associates, Inc., family of businesses, of which OncLive is a part.

In partnership with Apogee Biotechnology Corporation, LSU Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center was recently awarded a $1.5 million contract by the National Cancer Institute to conduct clinical trials on the most common subtype of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

“Our focus is on the people from the communities we serve,” said Augusto Ochoa, M.D., director of the Center. “Our new partnership with OncLive will make it easier for us to let those people know we are here for them.”

The LSU Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center joins more than 50 other leading cancer centers, nursing schools and physician groups around the country in partnering with OncLive.

“The Strategic Alliance Partnership program serves everyone committed to fighting cancer. When we work together and share our knowledge broadly, we are better armed to improve our efforts to overcome this devastating disease,” Hennessy said.
