ASU's Biodesign Institute receives cancer research funding from the Dorothy Foundation

The Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University is proud to announce a very significant contribution from the Dorothy Foundation. This would allow researchers at ASU to have access to a worldwide research and data resource from what will be the largest, most sophisticated cancer study ever conducted by the American Cancer Society.

Tom King, representing Alliance Beverage Corporation on behalf of Alliance President Shawn Thurman and Executive Vice President Gary Lederer, presented a check to go toward supporting the developing partnership between the upcoming American Cancer Society CPS-3 Study and the ASU Biodesign Institute. The sharing of data and information from this partnership has the potential to accelerate discoveries in early detection and finding more effective treatments in the fight against cancer.

First on Fox - Jack Andraka

If there is one example of how the open science movement can have a dramatic effect on cancer research, it is without question the story of 16-year-old Jack Andraka.Jack was rejected by a long list of research labs but once he was finally allowed to study and research the data he changed the way we look at cancer research with what is being called the first early detection device for pancreatic cancer. He represents what the open science movement is all about. Sharing data and research across all lines can lead to a faster path to earlier diagnoses and more effective treatments. This accomplishment is at the very heart of what the Dorothy Foundation represents. We are proud to say Jack Andraka has agreed to become an advisor to the Dorothy Foundation. Please watch this news feature and you will see why we are excited to have Jack on board with the Dorothy Foundation. 



Cancer Commons Feature - Data Matters!


The Dorothy Foundation Kick-off Luncheon 

The open science movement in the fight against cancer was introduced to Arizona by way of the Dorothy Foundation Kick-off Luncheon at the Arizona Biltmore Resort. The beautiful Aztec Ballroom was filled to capacity with folks from all walks of life as the Dorothy Foundation proudly presented a group of distinguished speakers that included: Dr. Josh LaBaer, Chairman of the ASU Bioscience Department; Marty Tenenbaum, founder of Cancer Commons; Dr. Dan Rubin, Naturopathic Oncologist and Gordon E. Moore Award winner, Jack Andraka.

The Dorothy Foundation is working diligently to encourage cancer researchers to share information and data with the hope of achieving better results in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Dr. LaBaer is considered one of the nation’s best when it comes to biomarker cancer research. Jack Andraka is the 16-year-old prodigy who is credited with inventing the very first early diagnostic test for pancreatic cancer. Dr. Dan Rubin is also recognized as a leading authority when it comes to working with cancer patients through nutritional support and alternative therapies. The Dorothy Foundation has also partnered with Cancer Commons in an effort to get the most effective clinical trials to oncologists and patients in the area of targeted personalized cancer treatment.

We encourage you to watch our review of the Dorothy Foundation Luncheon. We believe our efforts will make a difference for cancer patients today.
