Overview of the Faculty Mentoring Programs within the School of Medicine

October 26, 2017 7:30 a.m. Duke North Room 2002

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.

Mark Dewhirst, DVM, PhD.

Gustavo S. Montana Professor of Radiation Oncology, Vice Director for Basic Sciences, DCI and Associate Dean for Faculty Mentoring, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, NC

A native of Manhattan, Kansas, Dr. Dewhirst received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree and PhD degrees from Colorado State University. He joined Duke in 1984 when he was recruited to set up a multidisciplinary hyperthermia research program. Dewhirst has spent more than 30 years studying causes of tumor hypoxia, angiogenesis and the use of hyperthermia to treat cancer. In collaboration with the Pratt School of Engineering he developed a novel thermally sensitive drug carrying liposome, which has been successfully translated to Phase III human clinical trials.
He has more than 600 peer-reviewed publications, book chapters and reviews with over 29,000 citations and an H-index of 86. He is most proud of the nearly 70 mentees he has had the privilege of mentoring in his career.

The Role of Peptide Receptor Radiotherapy (PRRT) in Neuroendocrine Tumors

November 9, 2017 7:30 a.m. Duke North Room 2002

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

November 16, 2017 7:30 a.m. Duke North Room 2002

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.

Jonathan M. Morris, M.D.

Assistant Professor of Radiology, Division of Neuroradiology, Mayo Clinic.

Jonathan M. Morris, M.D. is co-director of the 3D Printing/Anatomic Modeling Laboratory at Mayo Clinic, which produces over 700 anatomic models per year for complex surgical and multidisciplinary patient care, presurgical simulations, custom device creation, and medical and patient education.  Dr. Morris is an international leader within the field focusing on research, educational, clinical, and forensic applications of this disruptive technology. He has co-developed the only CME course for physicians dedicated to 3D printing.

Dr. Morris is also Assistant Professor of Radiology in the Division of Neuroradiology at Mayo Clinic where he specializes in diagnostic neuroradiology, diagnosis and treatment of CSF hypotension, and minimally invasive spine procedures.
