th_chimpWelcome to this week’s edition of Weekend Wonderings. The Buckeye football season ended not with a bang, but with a whimper. The basketball teams are beginning to engage in conference play to keep our attention.

Hopefully none of you suffered too much from the recent polar vortex induced weather. And if you did, you’re thawed out by now.  Grab whatever beverage you’d like and let’s proceed.

The James/Wexner, Cleveland Clinic

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society  just announced the award of  $12.5 million in grants to 21 studies in 6 areas. Please click the link to get the details. Among the awardees:

  • Robert Baiocchi, M.D., Ph.D., The Ohio State University Research Foundation. Targeting PRMT5 expression in DLBCL and MCL

In response to requests for proposals (RFPs) from researchers in these six critical areas, LLS has awarded these grants under its Translational Research Program (TRP), an initiative designed to help accelerate the movement of promising discoveries from the lab to the clinic. Each grant is for a three-year duration with a total value of $600,000.

Good luck Dr. Baiocchi.

Here’s a two-fer for you. Sign up for a fitness boot camp conducted by John Simon/Anthony Schlegel and make a contribution to the Urban and Shelly Meyer Fund. It’s never too soon to start on your New Year’s resolutions while contributing to a significant cause.
