Timur Mitin, MD, PhD receives 20-17 SWOG Dr. Charles A. Coltman, Jr. Early Career Fellowship award . This competitive career development award was announced during the plenary session of the Spring 2017 semi-annual SWOG Group meeting in San Francisco [PDF]. The SWOG Dr. Charles A. Coltman, Jr. Fellowship Program protects time for clinical or translational research on SWOG‐associated projects. The funding encourages investigators from SWOG member institutions to engage either in learning clinical trial methodology or in expanding current research interests within a cooperative group environment. The program strives to honor the legacy of long time SWOG Chair and leader, Dr. Chuck Coltman, through encouraging the spirit of scientific integrity and the ultimate commitment to bettering patient care. The Hope Foundation sponsors the Coltman Fellowship Program through support of both early and midcareer awards. Each award category provides $100,000 over two years to successful candidates, as well as key travel support.
