UNC Translational Research Team Receives Developmental Award to Explore Disparities in Bladder Cancer

Drs. David Chism, Hematology/Oncology fellow, and Matthew Milowsky, Associate Professor and co-director of the Multidisciplinary Urologic Oncolgy Program (http://unclineberger.org/meetourdoctors/milowsky) recently received a UNC Lineberger Cancer Center Developmental Award to support their project entitled, “Bladder cancer in African-Americans, defining intrinsic biology and outcome.”

Drs. David Chism, Hematology/Oncology fellow, and Matthew Milowsky, Associate Professor and co-director of the Multidisciplinary Urologic Oncolgy Program (http://unclineberger.org/meetourdoctors/milowsky) recently received a UNC Lineberger Cancer Center Developmental Award to support their project entitled, “Bladder cancer in African-Americans, defining intrinsic biology and outcome.”  This important study will build on seminal observations from the group suggesting the possibility of differences in intrinsic biology among African-American bladder cancer patients that may point to a better understanding of previously observed racial disparities in outcome from this disease.  http://unclineberger.org/research/developmental-research-awards/2013-awards
