From the Poster Session: Meet the AICR Grantees

By Posted on

Several AICR-funded researchers came to our conference last week to present their latest findings in the poster session:

Dr. Emmanuel T. Akporiaye of the Robert W. Franz Cancer Research Center in Portland, Oregon, updated us on the progress of his grant examining the effect of a derivative of vitamin E on breast cancer tumors. (Earlier this year, we profiled Dr. A in AICR’s biweekly e-newsletter Cancer Research Update.  A longer version of that interview appeared in this Summer’s AICR ScienceNow newsletter.)

AICR Grantee Emmanuel Akporiaye Dr. Nameer B. Kirma of the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio presented data from his work with soy components and breast cancer.

    Should Cancer Survivors Exercise?

    Is it important for cancer survivors to exercise?  Dr. Melinda Irwin summarized observational studies which all showed a decreased risk of cancer recurrence with physical activity.  The good news is that all levels of exercise showed benefit.  Those who met the U.S. physical activity guidelines showed greatest benefits.  So – grab your sneakers and take a walk!
