It’s become a bit of a tradition for the Foundation to send a Thanksgiving note, and this year we’re excited to support projects that have evolved as part of ongoing work by researchers and the Foundation.
As you know, we seek new ideas and collaborative approaches and in 2021 that has translated into: continued work with NIH supporting next generation research, funding an initial site for breast cancer treatment clinical trial from the lab of Andrea Bild, Ph.D., at City of Hope, helping personalize radiation therapy for breast cancer with Heiko Enderling, Ph.D., at Moffitt Cancer Center, as well as extending funding to further the PhysiCell project developed by Paul Macklin, Ph.D.
The Foundation again hosted its annual October symposium, highlighting findings from collaborative research and hear a keynote address from the Jayne Koskinas Annual Keynote Speaker, Lisa M. Coussens, Ph.D. And I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Team TGM for its ongoing support.
Enjoy Thanksgiving with friends and loved ones and thank you again for being part of JKTG’s work. Happy Thanksgiving!

I’d like to introduce the concept that coalescing or “convergent thinking” may be detrimental within an organizational setting. By this, I mean that individuals working in the same or similar space often tend to think similar thoughts.
One would think that research about climate issue is one area that people would come together and commit to doing it right – collaboratively, transparently and without ego.
The Medicare Trust Fund (TF) Annual Trustees report on solvency drives much of the discussion about Medicare payments. Therefore, it’s important and appropriate to understand the underpinnings of the report in order to best understand and engage in the discussion.
