ST. GEORGE – Learn about cancer research and the contributions three researchers living in Utah’s Dixie are making to this effort at the next lecture in Dixie State University’s “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World” series, Tuesday from noon to 12:50 p.m. in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the Dixie State University campus. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.

Dr. Lincoln Nadauld, director of Cancer Genomics at Intermountain Healthcare, and DSU biology majors Brian Caldwell and Aston Basile will present “Cutting-edge Cancer Research: A Report from Stanford University.”

Nadauld earned a bachelor’s degree in zoology from Brigham Young University and medical and doctoral degrees at the University of Utah. He completed clinical training in medical oncology at Stanford University, where he also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in solid tumor genomics. Nadauld then remained on faculty at the Stanford School of Medicine, focusing on cancer genomics and personalized cancer medicine.

In addition to an extensive publication record, Nadauld has been awarded the Young Investigator Award by the American Society of Clinical Oncology and a Career Development Award from the National Cancer Institute.  At Intermountain Healthcare, an integrated healthcare system of more than 20 hospitals and 150 clinics, Nadauld is leading the clinical implementation of genomic-based cancer medicine.

Thanks in part to a partnership between Dixie State and Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George as well as Nadauld’s facilitation, Basile and Caldwell participated in Stanford University’s highly sought-after summer internship that focuses on cancer genomics research.

Dixie Forum is designed to introduce the St. George community and DSU students, faculty and staff to diverse ideas and personalities while widening their worldviews via a 50-minute presentation. Dixie State students can earn one college credit by signing up for HUM 1000, attending lectures regularly, carefully considering the ideas expressed and writing about the presentations.

The Dixie Forum series will continue at noon Tuesday, Oct. 28, when Kathleen Herndon, chairwoman of the English department at Weber State University, presents “Islamic New Year and Muslim Journeys” in the Dunford Auditorium.
