Damon Runyon grants Fellowship and Breakthrough Scientist awards to 21 top young scientists
Date:1/9/2012

By parsing apart the chemical interactions at the microbe-human interface, he will better understand how to minimize microbes capable of causing cancer while maximizing protective ones.

Dr. Crawford will soon be moving to an Assistant Professor faculty position at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut.

November 2011 Damon Runyon Fellows:

Mary J. Carroll, PhD, with her sponsor Stephen W. Fesik, PhD, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee, aims to design small molecule inhibitor drugs with high affinity for the protein Vav1. This protein is an attractive target for treating pancreatic cancer because it is highly expressed in pancreatic adenocarcinomas and activates pro-cancer signaling.

Sidi Chen, PhD, with his sponsor Phillip A. Sharp, PhD, at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, aims to understand the relationship between small RNAs and cancer. Small RNAs are important regulators of genetic networks inside the cell; perturbation of these networks can lead to malignant cell growth. His goal is to develop anti-cancer drugs and therapies by targeting the process of small RNA production.

Stephanie T. Chen, PhD, with her sponsor David J. Julius, PhD, at University of California, San Francisco, California, is studying somatosensation, the sense of "touch," with a focus on pain sensation. She aims to identify novel proteins that a) drive the development of sensory neurons, and b) confer the ability to detect painful stimuli under normal and pathophysiological conditions, including those leading to cancer-induced pain.

Jason A. Hall, PhD, with his sponsor Dan R. Littman, MD, PhD, at New York University School of Medicine, New York, New York, is investigating the biochemical and metabolic pathways that regulate the activity of the protein ROR gamma t, which has crucial importance in metabolism and immune system homeostasis. It is also linked to the developm
