So excited for this! @ShrimpWreck is going live this weekend! What could be better than a piping hot chowder in the cold Scottish autumn? Scottish friends- check them out in Portobello! If you meet Ewen, tell him you know me!

The fact that these disparities have continued unabated over the last decade (see Taffe and Gilpin, Life, 2021) should make equity a critical mission of the next NIH Director.
"The next director must address real systemic barriers at NIH. Black applicants received only 1.8% of NIH awards in 2020. Much more fund commitment is needed to tackle this persistent underrepresentation of Blacks in the agency’s grant recipients." nature.com/articles/d41586-0…

Very nice work from my friend and former TPM colleague, @DrGloriaSu !
Our discovery that loss of wild-type KRAS enhances YAP1 activation in #pancreaticcancer #胰腺癌 #膵臓癌 is published with #SpringerNature #Oncogene. It highlights the importance for target therapies to inhibit only mutant KRAS. Leave wild-type KRAS alone! rdcu.be/czHbL

Today I was sworn in as the Director of Health for the City of St. Louis. I brought my daughters to see. That they, like every child, every young girl, every young Black immigrant girl, can be their authentic selves and succeed. You are enough. Your light is needed. Never give up

So proud of @jparr03, an outstanding graduate student of Maureen Murphy @TheWistar for his publication in this inaugural issue of @CRC_AACR!
The Inaugural papers are now published! Joshua Parris et al. Explore a potential vulnerability of NRAS mutant #melanoma to synergistic inhibition of the kinase MEK and the protein folding chaperone HSP70. bit.ly/3DPCxsC @TheWistar @PennMedicine @ashaniTW

This is Dr. Mae Jamison, engineer, physician, and NASA astronaut. She, not William Shatner, was the first Star Trek cast member in space. And she actually orbited the earth for over a week. She also spend two years in Liberia and Sierra Leone as a Peace Corps field doctor.

You know a person is special when you ask him if there’s anything you could do to help in terms of providing collaboration or technology and he responds with what you could to help others. 💕 Such impressive science, such an impressive person! Thanks for coming to @JHSPHBMB
I just wanted take a moment again to thank @AshaniTW and @JohnsHopkinsSPH for the seminar invitation and allowing me to share my students’ work. Really enjoyed my chats with Dr.Drummond-Barbosa, Dr. Cai and @AshaniTW herself for stimulating, engaging chats!👏🏾

I never thought I'd say this about any religious figure, but man, I love this pope.
If you saw any Catholics freaking out about Pope Francis being on a roll yesterday, this is what they were referring to.

Always important to know your ABCDE’s.
Melanomas can vary greatly in how they look. Often the first sign of melanoma is a change in the shape, color, size, or feel of an existing mole. However, melanoma may also appear as a new mole or a rapidly enlarging bump.

We are reeling. So many lost this year. RIP, David. Thanks for being a staunch supporter of all of us @hopkinskimmel
Stunned by the devastating news from Boston of David Livingston’s death last night. Another giant of oncology lost in this sad year.

Please media--make sure that the other parts of the story are also headlined. Buried within the story is that General Powell had multiple myeloma - a blood cancer that requires chemo, immunotherapy, steroids. Read this 🧵by @meganranney ⬇️⬇️
I am shocked & saddened by the news of Colin Powell's death. Many are asking about the fact that he died of #COVID19 complications despite being vaccinated. But! That headline is inadequate. Here's my take - and my yet-to-be-answered questions: cnn.com/2021/10/18/politics/…
