Did you miss the most recent live presentation of the Big Ten Cancer Research Consortium’s Grand Rounds? Fear not, you can still watch it here:
Indiana University’s Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center hosted the event, titled “Basic and Clinical Aspects of Cancer Cachexia.” IU’s Anita Turk, MD, and Teresa A. Zimmers, PhD, discussed the clinical implications and treatment of cancer cachexia, and reviewed the underlying biology and pre-clinical advances to treat the disease. Cancer cachexia is a common manifestation of advanced malignancy and is associated with poor prognosis.
The Big Ten CRC Grand Rounds are monthly educational events hosted live by member institutions for faculty investigators, scientists, fellows, residents, medical students, and clinical research staff. The goal of the Big Ten CRC Grand Rounds is to expand awareness, dialogue, and opportunities for collaboration between its member institutions.
