Alfred I. Neugut, MD, PhD,

The Myron M. Studner Professor of Cancer Research in Medicine and professor of epidemiology (Mailman), has received a three-year grant of $1.6 million from the National Cancer Institute for the Columbia-South Africa Training Program for Research on HIV-associated Malignancies. This program aims to strengthen the institutional base for bench-to-bedside research on HIV-related malignancies at three major institutions at the epicenter of the HIV pandemic and to give the rising generation of scientists a global health perspective. Dr. Neugut also has received a three-year Health Disparity Award of $717,000 from the DoD/Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program for research titled "Racial Disparities in Palliative Care for Prostate Cancer." The study will explore key variables, especially race, but also tumor and provider characteristics and health care settings, which can be analyzed from a large population-based administrative database, and investigate their roles in three common palliative settings among prostate cancer patients.
