Message from the HDRP Associate Director

Welcome to the revised HDRP newsletter! This newsletter has been redesigned based on feedback we received back in February when we fielded a brief survey to evaluate our communication activities. We hope that you find that we have been responsive to your requests for more content on funding announcements, upcoming events, and research data and resources. Our plan is to create shorter newsletters that are issued more frequently throughout the year so that you receive pertinent information in a timelier fashion. We hope that the revamped format will better suit your needs and the needs of our broader research community.

We welcome your feedback on how we can continue to improve upon this communication vehicle. Thank you for your efforts to advance innovative research to improve the delivery of cancer-related care.
