Overview of the Faculty Mentoring Programs within the School of Medicine
This presentation will provide an overview of services that are offered to Duke Faculty, through the Office for Faculty Mentoring. These offerings compliment the outstanding programs that are offered through the Office for Faculty, under the leadership of Dean Ann Brown. The Office for Faculty (Research) Mentoring was formed in 2011, in response to: 1) a documented need to assist junior faculty to be more competitive in the grant market and 2) the goal of retaining the best research oriented faculty at Duke.
The Role of Peptide Receptor Radiotherapy (PRRT) in Neuroendocrine Tumors
For the past two decades, development of radiolabeled SSAs has allowed for delivery of radionuclides to somatostatin-receptor (SSTR) expressing tumors. The NETTER-1 trial, an international, randomized phase III study, demonstrated the efficacy of PRRT in advanced Midgut NETs. This talk will review the risks and benefits of treatment with radiolabeled SSAs, and discuss the role of PRRT within the context of other systemic NET treatments.
3D printing is a disruptive technology that has transformed care at The Mayo Clinic over the last 11 years. Additive manufacturing/3D printing started in industrial manufacturing and has quickly spread to medical applications. While not a new technology, it is being applied in new ways. This talk will focus on surgical and educational applications of 3D printing models as well as the regulatory environment and current challenges of in hospital medical 3D printing.
