Cancer is both personal and professional for Ohio State engineering professor Jessica Winter.
While undergoing treatment for breast cancer in 2011, Winter decided to change her research focus to figuring out how to turn her lab’s discoveries into diagnostic tools that could benefit patients more quickly.
Her journey as a scientist and cancer survivor is the cover story of Cancer Today magazine’s Winter 2015/2016 issue. http://ow.ly/XhcZZ

NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center for Prevention, Detection, and Treatment
Introduction

The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute strives to create a cancer-free world by integrating scientific research with excellence in education and patient-centered care, a strategy that leads to better methods of prevention, detection and treatment. Ohio State is one of only 41 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and one of only four centers funded by the NCI to conduct both phase I and phase II clinical trials. The NCI recently rated Ohio State’s cancer program as “exceptional,” the highest rating given by NCI survey teams. As the cancer program’s 306-bed adult patient-care component, The James is a “Top Hospital” as named by the Leapfrog Group and one of the top cancer hospitals in the nation as ranked by U.S.News & World Report.
