WRNMMC UsToo! Newsletter

 

Current Newsletter - NOVEMBER 2016, Volume 25 Issue 4

After eleven years of the WRNMMC Prostate Cancer Newsletter distributed in hard copy via the US Postal Service, the newsletter is now completely "digital," and posted exclusively to the CPDR web site.

The WRNMMC US TOO Newsletter started as an eight page publication intended for the military prostate cancer community in the Greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. It grew rapidly under the leadership of the late Bob Zveare, the founding editor. Initially printed in 200 copies for local distribution, it is now digitally distributed far beyond "the Beltway."

The Newsletter is produced and distributed quarterly without charge to the expanded readership. Corporate grants and individual donations from the readership provide the financial wherewithal to sustain the operation. There are no paid employees. Instead, the Newsletter relies on volunteer effort from within the WRNMMC US TOO board of directors for its operation. The respective staffs of the WRNMMC Urology Service and the Department of Defense Center for Prostate Disease Research (CPDR) also provide support and encouragement.

Dr. Charles P. Xavier Takes the Robert A. Phillips Award and a Navy-wide Academic Research Competition Award

by Paula Amann
Published in the June 2016 issue of Military Medical Research News, a monthly newsletter of the Department of Research Programs, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Fine-tuning facial transplants, predicting bone fractures, shrinking prostate cancers with new drugs and cutting the costs of surgical training with the right technology: These were among the problems probed by competition winners for 2016 Research and Innovation Month at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC).

The events, during Poster Display Week on May 11 and the Research Symposia on May 18-19, drew abstracts for 178 projects. After winnowing by pre-selection judges, 22 finalists emerged in three categories: case reports, evidence-based practice and quality improvement (a crucial non-research area).

Another 24 finalists, split evenly between laboratory and clinical research, vied for the Robert A. Phillips (RAP) and Bailey K. Ashford (BKA) Awards. The two BKA winners were LCDR Gabriel Santiago, MC (laboratory medicine), and LT Scott Wagner, MC (clinical medicine).

RAP winners included LT Daniel Griffin, MC (resident laboratory category); CPT Sarah Placek, MC (resident clinical); Charles P. Xavier, Ph.D. (staff laboratory); and Benjamin Sheffield (staff clinical).
