2010 SCIENTIFIC RESEAERCH AND PRESENATIONS

The first six-months of 2010 have been scientifically productive for gynecologic oncologists at AdventHealth with 15 presentations at major national/international meetings. These include two oral and four poster presentations at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists (SGO) in San Francisco, CA (March). Upcoming presentations include two poster presentations at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in Washington, DC (April), three oral presentations at the World Robotic Gynecology Congress (WRGC) in Orlando, FL (April), one poster presentation at the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT) in Philadelphia, PA (May), and three abstracts including one with oral poster discussion at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago, IL (June). The scientific investigations encompass the program’s efforts in oncology clinical trials research, retrospective clinical research related to several surgical and oncology topics, and translational research into novel intra-peritoneal cellular therapies for ovarian cancer. Members of our program include Neil Finker, MD; Robert Holloway, MD; Glenn Bigsby, DO; Giselle Ghurani, MD; James Kendrick, MD; Lorna Peterson, DO; Anthony Rakowski, DO; Sarfraz Ahmad, PhD; and Susan Blaydes-Ingersoll, PhD. In addition, some of these research projects are in collaboration with investigators at Duke University, Mayo Clinic, UCLA, UCF, Universita’ degli studi di Pavia, Italy, and MD Anderson.
