UBC researchers to lead $4.7-million study on early-stage oral cancer
Date:5/27/2011

rincipal investigator Dr. Scott Durham, head of the division of otolaryngology at Vancouver General Hospital and a clinical professor at UBC's Faculty of Medicine. The study aims to build a network of clinicians, pathologists and research staff across the country to fight oral cancer.

"This study will have an immediate impact on practice if the study turns out the way we hope," says principal Investigator Dr. Miriam Rosin, a senior scientist with the BC Cancer Agency who holds joint appointments at UBC and Simon Fraser University. "If the study is successful, it will help to reduce the number of deaths from oral cancer as well as to improve the quality of life for people living with this disease. Working with scientists, we will have this new approach ready to disseminate to the surgical community at large and even globally."

The study's lead investigators also include Calum Macaulay, a clinical associate professor at the UBC Faculty of Medicine and an associate member in Medical Physics in the UBC Faculty of Science; and Stuart Peacock, an associate professor at UBC's School of Population and Public Health in the Faculty of Medicine.
