Molecular Markers Offer Opportunities to Improve Understanding of the Biology and Treatment of ...

In the United States, there are an estimated 72,570 new cases of bladder cancer each year. The Northwestern Medicine Department of Urology evaluates and manages each patient with emphasis on an integrated, multidisciplinary and stage-specific approach. Our team is committed to conducting innovative research to increase our understanding of the biology of bladder cancer and identifying new therapies and technologies for bladder cancer in order to improve quality of life for our patients. Joshua Meeks, MD, PhD, joins the show to share how his team of researchers are involved in three active trials focused on genetic and epigenetic changes in bladder cancer, as well as immuno-oncology in bladder cancer.

Considerations for Providing Mental Health Care to Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities

According to data from the American Psychiatric Association, people from racial/ethnic minority groups are 50% less likely to receive mental health care. There are many barriers to care at play including access to care such as lack of insurance or underinsurance, mental illness stigma, language barriers, etc. Inger Burnett-Zeigler, PhD, is interested in understanding the factors associated with mental health service utilization. Her research focuses on examining attitudes and beliefs about mental health, access to mental health treatment, engagement in mental health treatment, and barriers to mental health treatment among under resourced populations including racial/ethnic minorities and those with low income, limited education, and limited access to resources.
