Abstract:
Did you know that in 2010 more than 157,000 Americans died of lung cancer, or that the number of people dying from the disease is increasing? Lung cancer is the deadliest form of cancer, killing more people than the combined total of breast, prostate, colon and pancreatic cancers. In 2009, lung cancer killed 17,500 people in North Carolina -- more than heart disease -- in a state where smoking and diet remain tremendous challenges. Providing a unique overview of the fight against lung cancer is Christopher Ung, vice president of Oncology Thera­peutic Strategy at Research Triangle Park-based Quintiles, the world's largest life sciences testing and services firm. Quintiles works with companies worldwide in medical research, conducting many of the clinical trials companies rely on to test and develop new products. His area of focus is personalized medicine based on biomarkers -- genetic data that could indicate an individual's chances of developing cancer.

Abstract:
Nestled in groves of trees, North Carolina's capital city's--Raleigh--expansion is not always visible. But it's there, ranking Raleigh as the fastest-growing city in the United States. From the revitalized downtown to the new office tower Kane is building along the Interstate 440 Beltline; from downtown to Crabtree Valley Mall, Triangle Town Center and the suburban havens of Brier Creek and Wakefield; from center city urban residential growth through the Inner Beltline and on to the Outer Beltline; the remarkable changes in North Carolina's capital are simply breathtaking.\r\nNot just in terms of new buildings, but also in the preservation and modernization of older structures as the city grapples to preserve its historic past with the needs of a growing future. A significant example of Raleigh's growth is centennial campus, a vast high tech mixed use development by NC State University to site campus activities with private research firms and residential options, including a soon-to open Arnold Palmer designed golf course.
