Spotlight on Young Investigator Award and 2010 Review

Posted by on Feb 11, 2011 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Back in September 2010, The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation announced that it was partnering with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in supporting a 2011 Young Investigator Award in cholangiocarcinoma research. The Young Investigator Award is a one-year grant designed to encourage and promote high-quality research in clinical oncology, and it supports early career researchers in transitioning from a fellowship program to faculty appointment.

We are excited to have Jennifer King from Conquer Cancer Foundation (formerly The ASCO Cancer Foundation) join us on Wednesday, February 16 at 11:00 a.m. EST to discuss the Young Investigator Award with our community. Additionally, Jennifer will present details regarding an international award that The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is considering supporting.

In addition to Jennifer’s presentations on these awards, Sara Hinkley will present a review of The Foundation’s efforts in 2010, and discuss our upcoming initiatives for The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation in 2011. We hope you are able to join us for this important review, and offer any comments on where you would like us to focus our future efforts.

Please join us: February 16, 2011 – 11:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time
