Students, Faculty, and Staff,

Please join us for the 2023 Women’s Cardiovascular and Brain Health (WCBH) Symposium on Feb. 9, 2023 starting at 8:00AM in the MET building (109-111).
The purpose of the conference is to 1) promote research addressing women’s cardiovascular and brain health, 2) provide the opportunity for students and postdoctoral fellows to present their work, 3) foster regional and local research collaborations, and 4) raise awareness about the importance of women’s health research.

The symposium will have dynamic speakers from near and a far and expert panelist that will lead us all into a discussion about the importance of women’s preventative health care and what we can do about it.

At the symposium there will be a free lunch, student oral and poster presentations, and awards. Also, our keynote speaker (Dr. Styliani (Stella) Goulopoulou), will be presenting, who is the founder of the WCBH Symposium.

Prostate Cancer Foundation: Request for Team Science Applications


Letter of Intent due March 10, 2023

The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) is pleased to announce a Request for Team Science Applications for PCF Challenge Awards for investigations of metastatic, lethal prostate cancer. These awards will be funded depending on the level of innovation in applications received. PCF seeks high-risk, currently unfunded projects from academic institutions around the world. We especially encourage applications on prostate cancer disparity research that will help to define the origins of differential outcome for prostate cancer patients in men of under-represented populations, including those focusing on biology or healthcare access policy.

For additional information please visit the REAP webpage.  Please contact Meredith Fogleman or Zoe Metcalf if interested in submitting a Letter of Intent.
