Children's Cancer Fund brings world-class pediatric cancer specialist to Dallas

DALLAS - Dec. 5, 2001 The Childrens Cancer Fund of Dallas, now in its 19th year of supporting laboratory and clinical research, has helped bring one of the worlds most promising young pediatric hematologist/oncologists to UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.

A special Childrens Cancer Fund grant of $525,000, added to previously donated funds, will provide four years of start-up research support for Dr. Scott Cameron. A board-certified pediatric oncologist, Cameron comes to Dallas from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard. His research probes the fundamental mechanisms of cell growth, differentiation and death, and the links between natures programmed cell death and cancer.

Cameron is a first-class pediatrician, molecular biologist and cancer specialist, and he will augment UT Southwesterns core of internationally known oncologists and basic scientists already studying the cellular and molecular causes of cancer, said Dr. George Buchanan, professor of pediatrics and director of the universitys pediatric cancer program within the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center. Buchanan has also been a beneficiary of the Childrens Cancer Funds generosity as holder of the Childrens Cancer Fund Distinguished Chair in Pediatric Oncology and Hematology, established in 1993.

In addition to his position as assistant professor in both pediatrics and molecular biology at UT Southwestern, Cameron will also be an attending physician at Childrens Medical Center of Dallas.

Were very excited about Dr. Cameron coming aboard to enhance cancer research at UT Southwestern and treatment of cancer patients at Childrens Medical Center, said Dr. William S. Edell, president of Childrens Cancer Fund. The organization was formed in 1982 by parents of children being treated for cancer at Childrens Medical Center under the care of UT Southwestern physicians.

In February 2000, the Childrens Cancer Fund provided a $2 million challenge gift to UT
