WVU Clinical Trials Research Unit among top ten nationally for clinical trials accrual

Congratulations to the WVU Clinical trials Research Unit (CTRU) and Dr. Adham Salkeni, WVU’s principal investigator for the NRG Oncology group, the largest clinical trials collaborative network in the United States.  During the recent biannual meeting of the NRG, our CTRU was recognized as among the top ten main member sites to enroll the most patients on cancer clinical trials between January and June 2017.  “This places WVU on the national map for clinical trials accrual,” Salkeni said.  “This shows that we offer state-of-the-art research studies that examine the role of targeted therapies for the treatment of a wide variety of cancers that affect our patient population.”

    Barrackville Middle School athletes make donation to breast cancer research

    The boy’s and girl’s basketball teams at Barrackville Middle School are raising breast cancer awareness and supporting the WVU Cancer Institute in the fight against the disease. The players recently hosted their second annual pink out game against St. Francis at North Marion High School where they presented a check for $850 to the WVU Cancer Institute for breast cancer research. They, along with the St. Francis players, raised the money by selling pink t-shirts to their friends, families and others in their community. “Our athletes and coaches feel strongly about supporting this cause and want to help find a cure for breast cancer,” Russell Hixenbaugh, teacher and girl’s basketball coach at Barrackville Middle, said.
