Participants in this study have uterine cancer that has re-grown or has not responded to prior treatment. The purpose of this study is to find out if the study drug, Ixabepilone, works in treating this type of cancer and to find out what side effects are caused by treatment with this drug. In addition to the treatment part of this study, the researchers plan to test samples of the tumor (if available from a previous surgery). The purpose of this research is to determine if this testing can be used in the future to determine ahead of time which patients may respond to treatment or have good prognosis. Approximately 10 people will take part in this study conducted by investigators at the University of Iowa. Participation in this study will last as long as there is evidence that the tumor is not growing and there are no serious side effects.

The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of the research study drugs LY2875358 and erlotinib in making tumors smaller in patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer. This is a research study to test the effectiveness of LY2875358 and erlotinib, also known as "investigational." This means the drug has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use described in this study. However, the FDA has allowed the use of this drug for research. About 100 people will be enrolled in the study.

Participants in this study have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Studies have shown that blocking a certain pathway has the potential to control ER+ breast cancer progression. The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of using LEE011 in combination with letrozole to prolong progression free survival in postmenopausal women with advanced breast cancer. About 500 participants will take part in this study at multiple sites; approximately 16 participants will take part in this study at the University of Iowa.

Participants in this research study have Unresectable Stage IV Metastatic Malignant Melanoma (BRAF V600E Negative). Participants will receive either the drugs nab-paclitaxel( Abraxane®) and bevacizumab (Avastin®) or the commonly-used drug ipilimumab. The purpose of this study is to compare whether the study drugs nab-paclitaxel and bevacizumab keep cancer from getting worse for a longer period of time. Approximately 16 people will take part in this study conducted by investigators at the University of Iowa. Up to 176 people will take part in this study at approximately 11 sites in the Midwest Melanoma Partnership group.
