--Gacolditz (talk) 22:52, 4 August 2012 (UTC)--Gacolditz (talk) 22:52, 4 August 2012 (UTC) Hello, Gacolditz. We welcome your contributions to Wikipedia, but if you are affiliated with some of the people, places or things you have written about in the article Graham Colditz, you may have a conflict of interest or close connection to the subject.

All editors are required to comply with Wikipedia's neutral point of view content policy. People who are very close to a subject often have a distorted view of it, which may cause them to inadvertently edit in ways that make the article either too flattering or too disparaging. People with a close connection to a subject are not absolutely prohibited from editing about that subject, but they need to be especially careful about ensuring their edits are verified by reliable sources and writing with as little bias as possible.

If you are very close to a subject, here are some ways you can reduce the risk of problems:

  • Avoid or exercise great caution when editing or creating articles related to you, your organization, or its competitors, as well as projects and products they are involved with.
  • Be cautious about deletion discussions. Everyone is welcome to provide information about independent sources in deletion discussions, but avoid advocating for deletion of articles about your competitors.
  • Avoid linking to the Wikipedia article or website of your organization in other articles (see Wikipedia:Spam).
  • Exercise great caution so that you do not accidentally breach Wikipedia's content policies.

Please familiarize yourself with relevant content policies and guidelines, especially those pertaining to neutral point of view, verifiability of information, and autobiographies.

For information on how to contribute to Wikipedia when you have a conflict of interest, please see our frequently asked questions for organizations. Thank you.MuppetLabTech (talk) 21:47, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Not ure if you want the references added here or on the edited version. The original piece was drafted and entered by a colleague who lives in Idaho. I noticed some of the links were no longer working - Knol was removed form the web by Google, so i was trying to update some of these links top functional ones.


you might see https://news.wustl.edu/news/Pages/21265.aspx but that its an own institution piece - the AACR citation for that award and the ACS citation make sense as i added them...

could add a number of books and their full citation too if that would be useful. Also here is a link to upcoming keynote at international union against cancer conference later this month...

like willett i am noted in highly cited... thought this is not a thing they update anymore http://www.in-cites.com/top/2007/first07-cli.html research crossroads generates a listing of federal funded grants http://www.researchcrossroads.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=49&Itemid=55&user_id=681616

Biographical details[edit]

Hi again Graham.

Do you have a links to a source that would have some biographical details ? Sadly we can't just have you add them, they need to be verifiable as per this definition http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Verifiability. And anything with a good career summary ?

Also, if you have a decent photo that you would be preapred to donate to Wikimedia commons, we could use that.

Impressive career, judging from the awards, by the way. MuppetLabTech (talk) 21:08, 8 August 2012 (UTC)
