The Cancer Microenvironment program at URMC is excited and proud to participate in the Wilmot Warrior Weekend on September 29 – October 1st, 2023, in Rochester, NY. Wilmot Warrior Weekend is more than just a first-class cycling, walk, and running event – it’s a celebration and movement fueled to create new life saving treatments and cures for cancer patients in New York and around the world.
The Cancer Microenvironment Program (CME) program is one of the three Wilmot major research programs. The CME program is composed of several cancer researchers from multiple URMC departments which leverages expertise in cancer immunology, niche biology, radiation effects, and novel bioengineering tools to understand mechanistically and manipulate immune and mesenchymal cell populations that regulate normal stem cells but are hijacked to support cancer stem cells. The CME research teams are focused on benign and malignant stem cells and radiation biology in cancers that are heavily impacted by their tumor microenvironment and toxic exposures, such as breast, gastrointestinal, bladder, melanoma, and lymphoma and leukemia.
All fundraising will advance world class cancer research and survivorship programs at the Wilmot Cancer Institute and the University of Rochester. Please consider supporting our efforts by donating to my fundraiser and let’s leave cancer in the dust.
#C_ME Walk, C_ME Run, C_ME Ride… C_ME Leave Cancer in the Dust!
