Dr. Ruth Etzioni has received a seven-year Outstanding Investigator Award (OIA) from the National Cancer Institute so the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center biostatistician and holder of the Rosalie and Harold Rea Brown Endowed Chair can pursue “Modeling and Analytics for Novel Cancer Diagnostics.”

The award, which comes with around $7.4 million in funding, will allow Etzioni and her team to build frameworks and tools to evaluate novel cancer diagnostics such as new nuclear imaging modalities and multi-cancer early detection tests, commonly referred to as liquid biopsies.
