Fairway was the ultimate host of SpinOdyssey!

 

FAIRWAY MARKET, not only the Official Fuel for breakfast and lunch with freshly baked bagels and muffins, PB&J, delicious salads, wraps and organic fruit, but they also provide bottled water, Vitamin Water, ice, organic bike cleaner, all paper products, signs, AND Fairway Gym Bags! They had a team ride and matched their employee donations! Fairway proudly displayed photos of SpinOdyssey in their Canal Street Stamford store in the cafe, at the cash registers, on their entry/exit doors...even banners on the outside of the store.  Fairway sold pink pens, mentioned SpinOdyssey in print ads in local papers, and gave up plenty of parking spaces for our tents.

 

BIG THANK YOU to Jackie Donovan, Fairway's VP of Marketing, and her team!

 

Stay tuned for the date of a wrap-up party and slideshow in Fairway's cafe!

Ryan Overcash's research summary:

 

 

“Identification of a Novel Target for Treating Breast Cancer Metastasis”

 

Breast cancer metastasis accounts for the vast majority of deaths attributable to this disease, and a better understanding of the molecular drivers of the metastatic process is critical in order to develop therapies that reduce breast cancer mortality.  Emerging evidence suggests that members of the Abl tyrosine kinase family of proteins, Abl1 and Abl2, play an important role in driving breast cancer progression and metastasis; and that specific targeting of Abl kinases may effectively impair the metastatic capability of breast cancer cells.  One of the primary objectives of my research is to elucidate the functional role of Abl kinases in mammary tumor progression and metastasis using unique genetically engineered mouse models that we have available in our laboratory.  Additionally, we will test the therapeutic efficacy of novel specific Abl kinase inhibitors to impair metastasis in pre-clinical models of breast cancer.  These studies will also investigate the mechanisms by which Abl kinases promote metastatic progression, in part through reciprocal interactions between breast cancer cells and other cell types in the tumor microenvironment that are critical for disease progression.  This exciting project has significant potential to improve our understanding of breast cancer metastasis and to lead to improved targeted therapies that will reduce patient mortality and increase survival.  I am honored and grateful for the fellowship support provided through SPINODYSSEY that makes this research possible.
