Young Cancer Patient Inspires Hope

submitted by: mdanderson
Shane Leonard, a talented young man with his whole life ahead of him, did not let cancer create despair. Instead, Shane looked for opportunities in his new cancer hospital surroundings to inspire his future. At 17, cancer was found in his salivary gland. After surgery, he came to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for follow-up proton radiation treatment. In Shane's spare time, he would study quantum mechanics lectures and became friends with the senior medical physicist of...

CYCORE – Information Technology Tools Helping With Clinical Trials

submitted by: mdanderson
CYCORE (Cyberinfrastructure for Comparative Effectiveness Research) was a clinical trial conducted by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of California-San Diego and University of Alabama at Birmingham, that studied the use of sensing devices to wirelessly send health-related data from the patient’s home to the cancer research facility. The purpose of this study is for other researchers to use CYCORE’s technology to gather more detailed information in their own...
