SNEAK ATTACK ON CANCER

PLAY ME
THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY CANCER RESEARCH IN THE LAST 40 YEARS

Research being conducted by Dr. Daniel A. Saltzman at the University of Minnesota promises to completely transform how we fight cancer. Project Stealth uses altered salmonella to deliver a sneak attack of anti-cancer drugs directly into tumor cells – without causing any of the side effects traditionally associated with cancer treatments.

    Joe is a sophomore at the University of Iowa and writes for The Daily Iowa newspaper. Aside from being a columnist, Joe conducted research while at the university. As summer approached, Joe wanted to continue researching and immediately thought about Project Stealth through a family connection with Dr. Saltzman. Joe now spends many of his summer days in the Saltzman research lab and when he returns to the University of Iowa, he will study pre-medicine.

    Emily is a junior at Carleton College studying computer science and pre-medicine. Last year, Emily organized a TEDx conference for Carleton College and sought inspirational professionals to speak about their expertise. One of the speakers at the TEDx conference was Dr. Daniel Saltzman of the Saltzman research lab and the leading man behind Project Stealth. After hearing Dr. Saltzman share the Project Stealth story, Emily immediately knew she wanted to work in his research lab. After interviewing with Dan and shadowing him at the lab, Emily was more than excited.  Emily heads off to Budapest, Hungary this Fall to study abroad.

    Abdi first met Dr. Saltzman while he was in the operating room. Abdi was getting his appendix removed and Dr. Saltzman was his surgeon. Although Abdi was in a lot of pain after the procedure, he managed to remember the name of his doctor. The 14-year-old called the hospital, found Dr. Saltzman’s contact on the university’s website and simply asked, “How do I become a pediatric surgeon?” Dr. Saltzman was moved by Abdi’s diligence and said that Abdi asked some of the best questions he had ever heard. Abdi now assists in the Saltzman lab with his fellow researchers. Abdi’s dream is to attend the University of Minnesota and to become a pediatric surgeon just like Dr. Saltzman.

    Mike graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2009 with a degree in microbiology. During his undergraduate research project, Mike spent his time in the Saltzman research lab. After gaining a sincere passion for the research, Mike decided to prolong his dedication to Project Stealth. Upon graduation, Mike became a full-time scientist for Project Stealth cancer research. In his spare time, Mike enjoys hanging out with his friends. Mike’s next step is to take the MCAT and hopes to attend medical school.
