Accomplishments

Patricia Ernst, PhD
Co-Director, Cancer Mechanisms Research Program at Norris Cotton Cancer Center and Associate Professor of Genetics and of Microbiology and Immunology at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth

Dr. Patricia Ernst was elected a three year term as Director of the ISEH Society for Hematology and Stem Cells.  As Director she will steer the future of the organization and profession.

Charles Sentman, PhD
Co-Director, Immunology and Cancer Immunotherapy Research Program at Norris Cotton Cancer Center and Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth

Dr. Charles Sentman has joined the Tumor Microenvironment (TME) NIH study section as a charter member. This study section is part of the Oncology-1 basic translational IRG, and TME reviews grants with a focus on the basic mechanisms of interactions between tumor and host system including stromal cells, extracellular matrix (ECM) and extracellular molecules.  Emphasis is on evaluation of the tumor as an organ-like structure with complex, dynamic cross-talk.
