Cancer Researchers Receive $20,000 from Gromada

Scott Langevin, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Health, and Trisha Wise-Draper, MD, PhD, assistant professor in the Division of Hematology Oncology, both UC Cancer Institute and Cincinnati Cancer Center members, have been awarded a $20,000 grant by the Brandon C. Gromada Head and Neck Cancer Foundation. This will fund their research project titled "Efficacy of an LSD1 Inhibitor (GSK2879552) for Treating Sinonasal Squamous Cancer.”

The Gromada Foundation was launched June 3, 2012 by the Gromada family, the day after their oldest son Brandon died of an aggressive "poorly differentiated squamous cell cancer.” The goal of the foundation is to generate research funds for the development of innovative and more effective treatments for head and neck cancers.
