Bae-Jump to serve on NCI's Gynecologic Cancer Steering Committee

Dr. Bae-Jump will serve on NCI's Gynecologic Cancer Steering Committee.

This committee addresses, designs and prioritizes gynecologic cancer clinical trials to identify the best science in clinical research.

Dr. Bae-Jump is an assistant professor of gynecologic oncology and a member of the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.  Her research focuses on the impact obesity has on endometrial and ovarian cancer development and progression which may invariably dictate different treatment options for this particularly high-risk patient population. Obesity has been linked to poorer survival in endometrial cancer, and Dr. Bae-Jump is leading a clinical trial in endometrial cancer patients of a drug commonly used to treat diabetes, metformin, for which preliminary data show that this drug may have anti-tumorigenic benefits.
