Friends of Cancer Research recently announced the launch of the online forum Engaging Innovation (www.focr.org/EngagingInnovation).
With this site, the group will host leaders from regulation, research, drug development, treatment, and advocacy, encouraging them to share insights and innovations in an ongoing dialogue about the most critical issues in the fight against cancer.
The forum’s inaugural entry is an interview and video with Francis Collins, MD, PhD, Director of the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Collins sat down with Friends of Cancer Research to talk about personalized medicine, research funding, sequestration, and opportunities for young scientists in America.
Friends of Cancer Research invites members of the oncology research community to add to the conversation with comments, contributions, and engagement. Readers can pitch their ideas for future contributors on Twitter via @CancerResrch using #EngageInnovation or e-mail Friends at firstname.lastname@example.org. ■
