The Colleen Elliott Award Winner: Scott Hurton

Established in 2011, the Colleen Elliott Award was created to honour excellence in cancer research training and is awarded to a research trainee who demonstrates the greatest promise and potential for excellence in cancer research.

The work of this year's recipient, Scott Hurton, addresses the model of care for patients with pancreatic cancer, with the ultimate goal to improve patient outcomes. His study examines the outcomes of patients affected by all stages of pancreatic cancer.

This provides an opportunity to make a significant contribution to understanding how pancreatic cancer patients are treated in Nova Scotia. The outcomes of Scott’s project will provide an invaluable contribution to advance the quality of care of pancreatic cancer in Canada.

Scott Hurton's research has been funded by Craig's Cause Pancreatic Cancer Sociey and Beatrice Hunter in a joint partnership. We are so proud of Scott's success!

Cancer Research Training Program Successful Candidates!

Craig’s Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society is proud to announce that Moamen Bydoun (supervisor, Dr. David Waisman) and Dr. Scott Hurton (supervisor, Dr. Michele Molinari) have each been awarded a Cancer Research Training Program award, from the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute with funds provided by Craig’s Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society. Both awards are presented with great enthusiasm as both applicants placed in the top 5 of the graduate student applications. This is the first time that Craig's Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society has funded students and the first time that the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute has partnered with a society by way of matching funds. Both awards will commence January 1st, 2014 and we look forward to sharing the results of this promising research upon completion of the awards.

The Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute was created in 2009 to foster a more powerful and productive cancer research effort in Atlantic Canada.

Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute is a virtual institute that brings together a diverse community of cancer researchers in pursuit of a common goal: to save lives and ease the burden of cancer on individuals, families and society.

The Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute is taking these efforts even further. The institute provides a meeting place for researchers to share ideas and forge new collaborations, at Dalhousie University and across Nova Scotia, Atlantic Canada and beyond. It will offer a key entry point for members of the public who want to learn more about cancer research in the region, for people seeking training and careers in cancer research, and for people who want to support cancer research.

The Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute aims to build a cancer research effort that:

  • · encompasses all aspects of cancer research
  • · transforms our understanding of cancer
  • · pioneers major improvements in cancer treatments and care
  • · discovers ways to detect cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages
  • · discovers ways to prevent cancer metastasis
  • · is known and respected around the world

More information about the recipients and their research can be located at the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Institute website.
