Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation awards prestigious fellowships to 17 top young investigators
Date:12/12/2007

B>Michelle M. Boehm, PhD, with her sponsor Bonnie L. Bassler, PhD, at Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, is studying the basic mechanisms of cell-to-cell communication, a key process in the development of malignant cancer, using simple model organisms whose cellular communication has been well-defined.

  • Ken Cadwell, PhD, with his sponsor Herbert W. Virgin, IV, MD, PhD, at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri, is using a novel mouse model to investigate autophagy, a cellular process that is intimately linked to cancer and human disease.

  • Erhu Cao, PhD, with his sponsor David J. Julius, PhD, at the University of California, San Francisco, California, is investigating the structure and function of sensory transient receptor potential (TRP) channels for better management of cancer-related pain.

  • Alexandra M. Deaconescu, PhD, with her sponsor Nikolaus Grigorieff, PhD, at Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts, is investigating how adenomatous polyposis coli, the most commonly mutated protein in colorectal cancers, nucleates actin and regulates the organization of the cellular cytoskeleton.

  • Erik W. Debler, PhD, with his sponsor Gnter Blobel, MD, PhD, at The Rockefeller University, New York, New York, is investigating core structures of the nuclear pore complex (NPC). Chromosomal translocations of NPC proteins are linked to various types of cancer, including myeloid and lymphoid leukemias.

  • Gianna Elena Hammer, PhD, with her sponsor Averil Ma, MD, at the University of California, San Francisco, California, is investigating how dendritic cells, the regulators of T cell function, detect infection or cancer and then coordinate protective immune responses.

  • Yoh Isogai, PhD, with his sponsor Catherine Dulac, PhD, at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, is investigating causes and effects of stress hormone ACTH perturbation, a hall
