Introducing May Guest Blogger: Dr. David Scott
May 2, 2016
Thank you to our April guest blogger, Robyn Roscoe, who shared some great insight into how project management can be an integral part of the research team.
This month, we’re excited to welcome Dr. David Scott, who is a Clinician-scientist with the BC Cancer Agency’s Centre for Lymphoid Cancer, which has become one of the world’s leading centres for lymphoid cancer research.
Originally from New Zealand, Dr. Scott was one of the first two recipients of the BC Cancer Foundation Clinical Investigator Awards. A large focus of his work has been studying prognostic biomarkers, which help clinicians determine which patients will respond to different treatments.
As a Clinician-scientist, Dr. Scott is involved in both patient care and research. This puts him in a great position to take science and translate it into something that is clinically useful.
Join me in reading along this month to learn more about Dr. Scott and the recent discoveries he and his team have made that hold great promise for those with lymphoma.
Sarah joined the BC Cancer Foundation as President & CEO last month, bringing an extensive 20 year career in fundraising and leadership. She has had exceptional success leading teams through large scale fundraising initiatives for Boston Children’s Hospital and New York Presbyterian Hospital. Most recently, Sarah was the Assistant Dean of Development and Alumni Relations in the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Medicine, and in this role built a team that launched and completed a $440 million, seven-year campaign, which included the Faculty’s largest-ever donation.
