CBDI’s Maryam Fouladi Joins Cancer Moonshot
Maryam Fouladi, MD, MSc, Medical Director, Brain Tumor Center, has been invited to participate in the National Cancer Moonshot initiative as a member of the Blue Ribbon Panel Working Group on Pediatric Cancer.
The Moonshot initiative, led by Vice President Joe Biden, aims to accelerate current cancer research efforts and break down barriers to progress, making more therapies available to more patients, while further improving early detection and cancer prevention efforts.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has assembled a blue ribbon panel and related working groups to provide expert advice on the vision, proposed scientific goals, and implementation of the National Cancer Moonshot. The panel will use input from the working groups to make recommendations to the NCI director on how to best advance the themes proposed for the Moonshot.
“This appointment recognizes Dr. Fouladi’s work as a national leader in brain cancer treatment and research,” says Margaret Hostetter, MD, Chair, Department of Pediatrics, and Director, Cincinnati Children’s Research Foundation. “Her work is a prime example of the enormous potential impact of our new Proton Therapy Center and the genomics innovations occurring at Cincinnati Children’s.”
