The Norris Cotton Cancer Center is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Konstantin Dragnev as co-director of the NCCC Cancer Mechanisms Research Program. Dr. Dragnev received his MD degree in 1987 from the Higher Institute of Medicine in Bulgaria, did a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Cancer Institute, followed by postgraduate training in internal medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine, and completed his Medical Oncology Fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The focus of his research and clinical interest is lung cancer. Dr. Dragnev leads medical oncology participation in the Comprehensive Thoracic Oncology Program serving on NCCC’s clinical trial scientific review committee and participating in several DHMC fellowship programs. As the Medical Director of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center Infusion Suite, he is leading efforts to innovate and streamline the delivery of standard and investigational therapies to patients with cancer and blood disorders.
The Norris Cotton Cancer Center is pleased to announce the appointment of Carmen Marsit as co-director of the NCCC Cancer Epidemiology Research Program. Carmen received his BS from Lafayette College in 2000 and his PhD in Biological Sciences in Public Health from Harvard in 2004. Carmen is an experienced molecular epidemiologist with unique multidisciplinary training and expertise in molecular biology, genetics, and epidemiology and his research combines these disciplines to powerfully examine the importance of epigenetic regulation in cancer biology and pathology with the use of genomic technologies in population-based studies. He has led pioneering work on the examination of epigenetic mechanisms in human population studies, including work in bladder, lung, and head and neck cancers. He also has a significant research program focused on identifying how environmental exposures linked to carcinogenesis and other health outcomes impact the human epigenome. Carmen has a strong publication and extramural funding record that provide strong evidence of this expertise and skill in molecular epidemiologic studies.
Please join us on Tuesday, December 10th in Auditorium G at DHMC for the Cancer Nanotechnology Symposium. Immuno targeting and delivery mechanisms are a central part of advancing the role of nanotechnology in cancer imaging and therapy, and this will be the focus of speakers for this annual symposium. Invited speakers will cover a range of topics in engineering proteins for targeted delivery and packaging. Immune targeting and modulation will also be discussed as it relates to the eventual role of nanotechnology in cancer. Participants are welcome to register and bring posters, to be viewed at a late afternoon reception.
This event is sponsored by the Dartmouth Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence and includes participants from across the disciplines of engineering, immunology, surgery, and medicine. All presentations will be at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
