Loyola, Notre Dame cancer researchers to team up

MAYWOOD, Ill. (AP) — Loyola University Chicago and the University of Notre Dame plan to team up on cancer studies with seed money for researchers totaling $200,000.

The universities announced the joint effort this week. Dr. Patrick Stiff of Loyola's Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center says the idea is to blend Loyola's clinical and translational expertise with Notre Dame's leading science research program.

The funding comes from Loyola's cancer center, University of Notre Dame's Harper Cancer Research Institute, CHE Trinity Health and donors Michael and Estella Cronk of Oak Brook.

The one-year grants are intended to support initial data collection for research on ovarian cancer, immune system therapies, leukemia and melanoma.
