The RMC Alliance is thrilled to learn that our founding Vice President and tireless pioneer of kidney cancer research and advocacy Dr. W. Kimryn Rathmell, MD, PhD will be appointed as the 17th Director of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). To fully execute her new duties, Dr. Rathmell has resigned from the RMC Alliance in all capacities. We can think of no other person better suited to lead the NCI towards the future of patient-centric multidisciplinary cancer care.
