Patankar, Manish, PhD
Milwaukee—Manish Patankar, Ph.D., an associate professor in the Research Division of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, accepted a twenty-thousand dollar contribution toward his laboratory’s research exploring detection and treatment of ovarian cancer from the Wisconsin Ovarian Cancer Alliance (WOCA) at their annual survivor’s brunch on Sunday.

Patankar also provided a research update to over 100 ovarian cancer survivors and their guests who were in attendance at the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee.

Patankar has a history of collaboration with WOCA, having opened his laboratory on several occasions to groups of survivors, allowing them the opportunity to view and interact in person with cutting-edge ovarian cancer research. WOCA has made two previous donations in support of Patankar's work.
