Young Investigator Presentations - May 29, 2012
The Cancer Research Foundation is pleased to present our first ever set of You Tube Videos. This year, we asked each of our 2011 Young Investigators to present the work they were pursuing. We then filmed each presentation so that we could make it available to our friends and donors.
This selection of videos does a good job of showing how varied some of the work supported by the Cancer Research Foundation can be – in just one year we have researchers working in skin cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, neurobastoma and head and neck cancer. The research described runs the gamut from using genome wide association to find reasons why therapies work on some people and not others to developing totally new modes of treatment using newly available technology.
Here are links to the individual presentations:

The Cancer Research Foundation has focused attention on cancer and raised money for life-giving research. We...pay tribute to the scientists who have dedicated themselves to finding a cure and to meet the young researchers who are the next generation of fighters against this disease. The message we send today is that those who suffer from cancer are not alone and that together we can work toward a solution."Richard M. Daley
