Durham NC —Bryan R. The problem is, cancer cells find their way to other parts of the brain and are very hard to kill. and Ph.D. Using K12 and K08 funding I developed a rabbit model to study the fetal and placental effects of oral pathogens. He performed his residency training in Internal Medicine at Duke University Medical Center and then subsequently completed his Medical Oncology and Hematology fellowship at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in 2010. Cullen was awarded this honor in recognition of his many important contributions to the field of virology while at Duke, including the discovery of the mechanisms of action of the essential HIV-1 proteins Tat and Rev and his demonstration of the key role played by small non-coding RNAs in regulating herpes virus latency. Last October, for instance, the FDA approved Imlygic, an engineered version of the herpes virus, for the treatment of the deadly skin cancer melanoma.
Lou, a diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine, is board certified in Medical Oncology and Internal Medicine. My goal is to integrate these fellow and faculty training programs in a such a way to capitalize on the enormous research infrastructure present as well as synergize campus wide efforts in women’s health research to improve health outcomes for the women and children we serve. He joined the faculty in the Division of Hematology, Oncology and Transplantation in 2011 and is a member of the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota. Publications Link to Dr. The focal point of the segment, however, was the story of Nancy Justice, a wife and mother in her late 50s. Serum biomarkers associated with clinical outcomes fail to predict brain metastases in patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancers. Moreover, I maintain close, active, and collaborative relationships with reproductive health researchers at FHI360, Gynuity Health Projects in New York, California Family Health Council, and elsewhere.
