Oncology Residents Win National Research Awards
Two oncology residents won research awards at the 2023 Veterinary Cancer Society (VCS) annual conference, held recently in Reno. Drs. Julia Colosi and Evangelia Makrygiannis both presented their research at the conference.
Dr. Colosi is a third-year resident in the Medical Oncology Service. Her oral abstract presentation titled “Outcomes of Dogs Treated with Sequential Half Body Radiotherapy and a Short CHOP Chemotherapy” won the E. Gregory MacEwen Memorial Award for outstanding oral research presentation.
Dr. Makrygiannis is a second-year resident in the Medical Oncology Service. Her poster presentation titled “Toxicity and Preliminary Efficacy of Fixed Dose Rate Gemcitabine in Dogs with Neoplasia” won the Amiya K. Patnaik Memorial Award for outstanding poster research presentation.
VCS provides educational opportunities that enhance the practice of veterinary oncology and inspire scientific and professional interactions by connecting those who have a shared interest in oncology. Its vision is a community welcoming all who are unified by a shared passion for understanding, preventing, and treating cancer.
