Cancer Institute Member Spotlight

Jesus Delgado-Calle, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor
Department of Physiology and Biophysics
UAMS College of Medicine

The Delgado-Calle laboratory investigates the mechanisms by which cancer cells alter the biology of other cells in the bone microenvironment, particularly osteocytes, with the final goal of identifying targetable factors for the treatment of cancer that grows in bone and its associated bone disease.

Renowned Expert in Cancer Disparities Presents Blass Lecture

The late philanthropist Elizabeth Weitzenhoffer “Betsy” Blass firmly believed in the importance of biomedical research and education.

Although Blass died in 2005, her influence lives on at the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute through an endowed lecture series she established to provide UAMS scientists the opportunity to interact with some of the world’s leading genetics researchers.

Held Oct. 19, the Elizabeth Weitzenhoffer Blass Lecture in Cancer Genetics was
presented online by Steven R. Patierno, Ph.D., deputy director of Duke Cancer Center and an internationally recognized expert for his research addressing the multilevel complexities of cancer disparities. Read more>
Klimberg Lectureship Offers Insight from Leading Breast Cancer Researcher
As a young physician-scientist, V. Suzanne Klimberg, M.D., Ph.D., found a lifelong mentor and friend in renowned breast cancer researcher Kirby Bland, M.D.

“Without him, I would not be where I am today,” said Klimberg, former division director of the UAMS College of Medicine Division of Breast Surgical Oncology.

That mutual respect and admiration led Bland to honor his former mentee by serving as featured speaker for the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute’s 2020 Suzanne Klimberg Endowed Lectureship in Breast Oncology.
V. Suzanne Klimberg, M.D., Ph.D., formerly served as director of the UAMS Division of Breast Surgical Oncology.

The presentation titled “Contemporary Molecular and Genomic Profiling for Breast Cancer” was offered online Oct. 28 as part of the Cancer Institute Grand Rounds lecture series. Read more>
