A paper by an NLCAHR-funded researcher, Yun Zhu on “Influence of pre-diagnostic cigarette smoking on colorectal cancer survivial: overall and by tumour molecular phenotype” has been published in the most recent issue of British Journal of Cancer.
We congratulate Yun and the entire team. In this study, the team was able to integrate information from various sources: epidemiological survey, clinical data, and genetic data. As a graduate student, Yun's research was supported by a Master's Fellowship from NLCAHR and by the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute (BHCRI).
A webcast of Dr. Anne Snowdon's December 2013 Research Talks public lecture on Health System Innovation is now available on the NLCAHR website.
Dr. Snowdon, academic chair of the International Centre for Health Innovation at the Richard Ivey School of Business, leads the Centre’s work to drive health system sustainability and productivity. She visited St. John's last month for a public talk about what Canadians value in the healthcare system and whether the system is delivering that value.
