blood-cancerWe feel fortunate to be the proud recipients of an American Cancer Society Seed Grant to continue our work investigating how obesity promotes hematological malignancy (cancer of the blood). This grant is administered through the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Iowa and will provide us with the resources to really take this line of research to the next level. Dr. Bates is looking forward to joining the fight to prevent cancer and develop new treatments for patients in need!
