E-Newsletter - August 2016


James (Jim) R. Marshall, MD, will be stepping down as the Alliance Prevention Committee Chair after five years of distinguished service. Dr. Marshall has been a strong leader for the committee during and since the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology merger, but is cutting back on work as he prepares for retirement. He feels that his stepping aside now will allow the new leadership to settle in and take the reins in time for the NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) grant renewal in two years. The Alliance Cancer Control Program will truly miss Dr. Marshall's superb leadership.   

The Alliance Cancer Control Program is now calling for nominations for an individual or a pair of individuals who have the dedication and talent required to take on this important role within the Alliance. A job description for committee chairs can be found at this link.  A search committee, led by Frank Sinicrope, MD, will be helping with this process. Please send names and CVs by Wednesday, August 31 to Jackie Lafky (Program Manager) at lafky.jacqueline@mayo.edu.
