Happy Thanksgiving!

Nov 28, 2014 - Given the holiday weekend, I just want to take the opportunity in this week's Front Line to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, and to give you a brief list of some of the exciting initiatives well underway in your NCTN group:

  • Incorporating Value of Information criteria into Executive Review (triage) of proposed trial concepts
  • Negotiating with NCI's Global Health on SWOG's role in advising on and aiding in the development of a new Latin America Cancer Research Network
  • Working on the first closure of a sub-study (S1400E) conducted under the Lung Cancer Master Protocol (also developing the next sub-studies that will open as part of Lung-MAP)
  • Planning for a leadership retreat
  • Collaborating with several member sites on EDRN grant applications
  • Discussing options for collaborating on Core Infrastructure & Methodological Research for Cancer Epidemiology Cohorts grant applications
  • Finalizing, with Hope, an RFA for a SWOG Rare Cancer Fellowship
  • Taking applications for the first round of SEED Fund awards (due December 15)
  • Finalizing the first year of the NCORP budget
  • Editing the Seminar in Oncology issue devoted to SWOG and the Network Groups
  • Semi-personally ... training for my Kilimanjaro Climb for Cancer Clinical Trials

I hope this holiday season is wonderful for you and yours. Thank you for supporting SWOG!
