Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, who represents the state’s 17th Congressional District, visited Ohio State's Biomedical Research Tower (BRT) on July 7. He toured the cancer research laboratories of Michael Ostrowski, PhD, and Gustavo Leone, PhD, both of the OSUCCC-James’ Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics Program, for which Ostrowski serves as co-leader. Also on hand was Michael Grever, MD, who chairs the Department of Internal Medicine and is co-leader of the Experimental Therapeutics Program at the OSUCCC-James. Grever told Ryan about Ohio State's plans to finish several floors of the BRT, an action made possible through a grant Grever received as part of the federal stimulus package. Ryan finished his tour with a discussion about ProjectONE, which is the largest expansion initiative in the University’s history and will include a new cancer hospital targeted for completion in 2014.
