Sarah Beth White, M.D., assistant professor of radiology and surgical oncology at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), has been awarded a two-year, $150,000 Research Scholar Grant by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Research and Education (R&E) Foundation to study metastatic colorectal cancer.
In this project, Dr. White will study a new method to treat colorectal cancer that metastasized to the liver using magnetically triggered nanoparticles of a platinum-based chemotherapy called Oxaliplatin.
“Colorectal cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death. If this study is successful, it has the potential to dramatically improve outcomes in patients with metastatic liver disease from colorectal cancer and opens the door to similar future therapies for other diseases. The RSNA is proud to be able to support Dr. White and her research,” said G. Scott Gazelle, M.D., Ph.D., M.P.H.; member of the R&E Foundation Board of Trustees.
This year the RSNA R&E Foundation has awarded 94 grants totaling $3.6 million. Dr. White’s grant is made possible by the support of Bracco Diagnostics Inc.
