STTR Overview ̶ Speeding Cancer Research and Improving Clinical Care
Seattle Translational Tumor Research (STTR) creates environments which enable researchers and clinicians to accelerate scientific discovery and translate it into preventions and cures for patients.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 STTR grants! We received many high quality proposals which spanned several exciting new technologies and precision medicine approaches.
In our Fall newsletter find out who received awards at the 2016 Oncology Recognition Day, get an update on the Oncoscape, our collaborative platform and community resource, and read clinical research updates.
We are excited to announce the expansion of STTR programing to include liquid tumor entities within STTR. Desert Horse-Grant will now focus on translational “cancer” research under one umbrella. Four new liquid and one additional solid tumor group into STTR: leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes/myeloproliferative neoplasms, and anogenital cancers.
