Dr. Yeatman presents at 2014 CCCR Faculty Retreat

On January 9th, CCCR faculty came together at their Annual Retreat to share new ideas and information.  Many graduate students featured their research in a lively poster session.  The keynote speaker was Dr. Timothy Yeatman, who is President of Gibbs Research Institute and Director of Gibbs Cancer Center in Spartanburg, SC.  Dr. Yeatman’s lecture, which was entitled “New Insights into the Molecular Biology of Colorectal Cancer”, reviewed the latest developments in personalized approaches to colon cancer.  In all, it was an informative and stimulating day!

It’s that time of year again!  With Colon Cancer Awareness month quickly approaching, it’s time to start stocking up on the 2014 Unmasking Colon Cancer Gala tickets.  The Gala is our annual fundraising event where colon cancer advocates come together to raise money to promote research, outreach, and screening within the state of South Carolina. This year, we will be celebrating our Colon Cancer Survivors, and will hear their stories in their fight against the disease.  Come join us on March 8th at the Koger Center for the Arts in Columbia, SC.
