Jean Maroun Scholarship recognizes resident’s research to help manage chemotherapy side effects

July 22, 2015

Post-graduate medical oncologist Dr. Terry Ng is the first recipient of the Jean Maroun Resident Research Scholarship, which will be presented annually to a resident whose research results have the potential to change practice. Dr. Ng’s research focuses on the use of a combination of drugs to control chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in breast cancer patients. The research, conducted under the supervision of Drs. Mark Clemons and Brian Hutton, included a systematic review of controlled clinical trials and a survey of 168 patients. A commentary outlining the results has been published in The Oncologist, and a grant application to support future research has recently been submitted. The scholarship is named after The Ottawa Hospital’s first medical oncologist, Dr. Jean Maroun, who retired in 2014 after 36 years of practice.
