Two Arizona Cancer Center members, University of Arizona cellular biology professor Patricia Thompson, PhD, and nutritional sciences associate professor Cynthia A. Thomson, PhD, RD, CSO, talk about breast cancer research on Arizona Illustrated.
Five members of the Arizona Cancer Center are in Brisbane, Australia, participating in the International Skin Cancer Research Workshop 2011, part of the activities of the Pan-Pacific Skin Cancer Consortium created in 2010.
For the third year in a row, an Arizona Cancer Center member has been honored with the University of Arizona's 2011 Technology Innovation Award. Evan Unger, MD, co-leader of the AZCC's Cancer Imaging Program, is this years honoree.
The Arizona Cancer Center Executive Committee chose Christina Laukaitis, MD, PhD, FACP, to receive the first Yellen Young Investigator Award. The $15,000 unrestricted gift is from Cancer Center board member Barry Yellen and his wife, Pat.
When Arizona Cancer Center member James E. Sligh, MD, PhD, took over as division chief of dermatology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, his top priority was to develop a residency program.
Measuring sun damage is an essential part of skin cancer research and treatment. It is also highly subjective, which makes it difficult to determine just how effective a new agent or intervention may be. Arizona Cancer Center member Naja E. McKenzie, PhD, RN, is trying to change that by developing a global photographic sun damage scale.
While Tucsonans often brag about enjoying so many sunny days a year, all that sunshine can take a toll, sometimes in the form of skin cancer. The Arizona Cancer Center provides enhanced education and training for skin cancer patients and high-risk individuals through a patient education program.
Imagine an automated diagnostic device that can determine whether a suspicious mole is dangerous without doing a biopsy. Swedish company SciBase has created a device that aims to do just that and it is being tested in a clinical trial at the Arizona Cancer Center.
