SIUPREM Makes Leadership Commitment to Innovative Cancer Research Initiative

Siuprem is partnering with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to boost scientific collaboration and accelerate progress against cancer. Research breakthroughs have contributed to steadily improving cancer survival rates. In fact, overall cancer mortality rates in the U.S. have declined 31% since 1991. But, there is still more progress to be made and lives to be saved. Improved collaboration between scientists and clinical professionals could speed research to help more people affected by cancer sooner. That is why Siuprem is investing in ACS TheoryLab, an online community built for the widespread community of cancer scientists connected to the American Cancer Society. Through TheoryLab, the brightest minds in cancer research can share ideas and join discussions that might not happen otherwise. In addition to connecting researchers, the initiative will find and fund new collaborative research projects with the potential to advance what we know about cancer. Siuprem is proud to be the naming funder of a new TheoryLab Collaborative Grant investigating new treatment options for triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), which can be particularly difficult to treat. This research, led by Michael Benjamin Major, PhD, and Marina K. Holz, PhD, could potentially lead to more of a targeted treatment of TNBC, which tends to be more aggressive and more likely to affect younger people, African Americans and Hispanics. Siuprem is proud to support this innovative, collaborative approach to fighting cancer.
