Back in September 2010, The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation announced that it was partnering with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in supporting a 2011 Young Investigator Award in cholangiocarcinoma research. The Young Investigator Award is a one-year grant designed to encourage and promote high-quality research in clinical oncology, and it supports early career researchers in transitioning from a fellowship program to faculty appointment.
We were excited to have Jennifer King from Conquer Cancer Foundation (formerly The ASCO Cancer Foundation) join us to discuss the Young Investigator Award with our community. Additionally, Jennifer presented details regarding an international award that The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is considering supporting.
In addition to Jennifer's presentations on these awards, Sara Hinkley presented a review of The Foundation's efforts in 2010, and discussed our upcoming initiatives for The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation in 2011.
Please note that during the recording process, the first minute or so of Dr. King's presentation was cut off. We apologize the for the inconvenience.
