Two CPDR Representatives Win the "2012 Best of Poster" Award at the AUA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA


June 1, 2012

CPT Philip Rosen, MD, and LT Travis Allemang, MD, both won the distinguished "2012 Best of Poster" award at the 2012 AUA Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA. On Sunday, May 20, 2012, Dr. Rosen presented his poster titled "Distinguishing Features of ERG Oncoprotein Expression Among Matched Cohorts of African-American and Caucasian-American Prostate Cancer Patients" at the 2012 AUA Annual Meeting. The next day, on Monday, May 21, 2012, Dr. Allemang presented his poster titled "Age-Associated Gene-Expression Signatures in Non-Familial Prostate Cancer."

Both posters were moderated poster presentations, which are sessions designed to permit the author to explain and illustrate their concepts, techniques, or research findings in a manner that will promote understanding more readily than a rapid-fire podium address. A moderator is present to facilitate questions and answers. Both Dr. Rosen and Dr. Allemang are recent residents at CPDR, and both show extreme promise and excellence in the field of prostate cancer research. The CPDR directors and staff are very proud of these young, talented doctors and hope to continue working with them in the future.

Congratulations to Dr. Rosen and Dr. Allemang!

The CPDR mission is fulfilled primarily through its three principal programs – the Clinical Research Center, the Basic Science Research Program and the National Multicenter Prostate Cancer Database– and through a robust education and training program that operates out of its Headquarters location, the Clinical Research Center, and the original laboratories at USUHS. CPDR is also committed to patient outreach, primarily through its affiliation with the WRNMMC US TOO! organization and through a heavy schedule of health fairs in which it participates.
