National Cancer Research Association Recognizes Local Researcher with Team Science Award
“I am incredibly honored to be a part of a team that is advancing the research and knowledge for various types of cancer,” said Dr. Rader. “I am excited to see how our discoveries can impact our patient’s treatments and overall health.”
TCGA was created in 2006 as a combined effort with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Human Genome Research Institute. The program brought together researchers from diverse disciplines and multiple institutions to create a detailed catalog of genomic changes associated with specific types of cancer. Since the creation of this program, TCGA has opened new avenues of research to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of various cancers.
TCGA founders and project team members are being honored with the AACR Team Science Award for their extensive collaborations and ongoing efforts to create one of the largest ever sets of tumor characterization data. The AACR Team Science Award recognizes the outstanding efforts of the interdisciplinary team of researchers for their innovative science that has advanced the knowledge of cancer.
MCW and the AACR congratulates all of the researchers who have been recognized for their involvement in TCGA and have made significant contributions to the advancement of cancer research and patient care.
