New research has highlighted the effectiveness of long-term treatment with tamoxifen, the first targeted therapy to be approved for treatment of breast cancer, for many patients with the disease. Stephen Edge, MD, formerly of RPCI and Alfiero Foundation Endowed Chair in Breast Oncology, and Gokul Das, PhD, Co-Director of RPCI's Breast Disease Site Research Group, discuss these recent findings as well as their ongoing clinical study, still recruiting new patients, to determine which patients will respond best to this important endocrine therapy.
From the UB Center for the Arts Artists in Residence program to Music in the Lobby and the outstanding collection of regional art that hangs on the walls of RPCI facilities, the arts play a significant role in Roswell Park's culture and care model. Volunteer Services Administrator Debra Miga is joined by Artists in Residence Molly Flynn and Barbara Murak for a conversation about the intersection of art and healing at RPCI.
Congressman Brian Higgins and RPCI Emeritus President & CEO, Dr. Donald L. Trump, discuss federal funding for cancer research, the economic impact of those investments and the looming threat of dramatic cuts that could be seen if budget "sequestration" is implemented.
