We are already preparing for VeloSano 5 - an annual bike ride dedicated to finding a cure for cancer. I hope you will join us for the ride on July 21-22!
All of the funds raised through VeloSano support cancer research. This event has quickly grown into the largest fundraising event for cancer research across Cleveland, and benefits the research programs of the Case CCC.
Respected Case Comprehensive Cancer Center researcher, Nathan A. Berger, MD, has compiled evidence from more than 100 publications to show how obesity increases risk of 13 different cancers in young adults. The meta-analysis describes how obesity has shifted certain cancers to younger age groups, and intensified cellular mechanisms promoting the diseases.
The NCI Board of Scientific Advisors met November 29, 2017, and the slide decks were recently released. The slides provide a snapshot of the direction of the NCI, and include funding opportunities and access to NCI resources that are useful for many investigators across the Case CCC.

Investigators at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center have developed a simple, swallowable test for early detection of Barrett's esophagus that offers promise for preventing deaths from esophageal adenocarcinoma.
Case Comprehensive Cancer Center organizes strategic meeting in Atlanta to plan next three to five years
Researchers at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) School of Medicine are focusing their efforts on adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer research. More than 50 leaders from top cancer research institutions will gather this Friday, Dec. 8, in Atlanta to identify a strategic plan for combating AYA cancer for the next three to five years.
Over the past year, the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center has undertaken a program and center-wide effort to identify our scientific initiatives for the next 6 years, and to integrate these with our research programs. This effort engaged the help of our entire membership, guided by our Executive Committee (EC), Institutional Advisory Committee, and External Advisory Committee.
For those of us on the course, at cheering or rest stop sites or volunteering along the way, it is a proud feeling to be part of an important community event. The weather was handled in a thoughtful way, and that allowed the entire ride to be uneventful and a rousing success!
