BIDMC scientist John Rinn, Ph.D., receives Damon-Runyon Rachleff Innovation Award
Date:1/22/2009

in cancer could open up new avenues for better diagnostics and therapeutics. If we can crack the 'code' of how lincRNAs establish normal states, we can understand what goes wrong in cancers. We could then engineer these RNA molecules to target and silence cancer genes, thus restoring the genome back to its proper identity."

"John Rinn's work pushes the scientific envelope," adds BIDMC Chairman of Pathology Jeffrey Saffitz, MD, PhD. "His innovative ideas and willingness to challenge traditional scientific thinking are translating into key discoveries, many of which have been developed through novel experimental methods. He truly encompasses a spirit of risk-taking and innovation."

After completing his undergraduate work in chemistry at the University of Minnesota, Rinn received a doctorate in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale University. He is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships including the AAAS Biovision Fellowship, the McDougal Fellowship and the Damon Runyon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship. Prior to joining BIDMC and the Broad Institute, Rinn was a member of the Howard Chang laboratory at Stanford University.
