Congrats to My Colleague on Cancer Advocacy Work

July 8, 2009

From the “Executive Appointments” section of the local City Paper:

Two from Vanderbilt-Ingram named to ‘Dream Team’

Two members of the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center community have been tapped to join an international “Dream Team” of cancer researchers. Professor Carlos Arteaga and patient advocate Patricia Lee will be part of the project that will seek to further breast cancer research and help tailor treatments to individual patients. Arteaga joins five other principal researchers from around the United States and Europe in the initiative.

The program, funded by Stand Up To Cancer, a charitable initiative of the Entertainment Industry Foundation will receive roughly $15 million for its three-year term.

Patricia Lee is one of my fellow medical librarians. Congrats, Patty!

    That is truly something to be proud of. I wish them both the best in their endeavors and research and as they seek additional funding.
