Generous donation from Toyota/Subaru of Ann Arbor

This past fall, Toyota of Ann Arbor/Subaru of Ann Arbor made a commitment to match every dollar donated to Rogel up to $20K during the month of October.

On January 26, they presented a check for $20K to Rogel Cancer Center Director Eric Fearon, M.D., Ph.D., during a ceremony in the cancer center building. We thank Toyota of Ann Arbor/Subaru of Ann Arbor for their generosity!

Voting now open for U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals survey

Each year Michigan Medicine and specialties, including cancer, are ranked by U.S. News & World Report in their Best Hospitals survey. A key measure in these rankings is reputation, which is based on physicians across the country voting for hospitals within their specialties, including their own hospitals. The care provided by Rogel is among the best in the nation, but advocacy for our institution is critical.

If you are a physician, please vote for Michigan Medicine by logging into your Doximity account. You are not required to vote for more than one hospital. Early voting has begun, and voting is open now through the end of March. We urge you to take action now.

Ljungman awarded $3.7 million grant from NIH

Mats Ljungman, Ph.D., professor of radiation oncology in the Medical School and professor of environmental health sciences in the School of Public Health, has received a $3.7M grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). He will use the funds to build upon his innovative work in cancer therapy.

The funding is directed toward the study of KLIPP therapy, a pioneering treatment method conceptualized by Ljungman, who is also co-director of U-M’s Center for RNA Biomedicine. The term “KLIPP” derives from the Swedish language, symbolizing both cutting and opportunity — a fitting name for a method that targets cancer at its most vulnerable points. Read more.
