Dr. Daniel Von Hoff presented with top genomics award from Scripps
Date:3/17/2011

LA JOLLA, Calif. March 17, 2011 Dr. Daniel Von Hoff was presented this month with the Scripps Genomic Medicine Award for his "pioneering efforts" in sequencing, or spelling out, the DNA of patients with rare cancers.

Dr. Von Hoff's research and clinical work advances the art of using the fully sequenced genomes of cancer patients, spelling out all 3 billion letters of their DNA, to help determine the best course of treatment.

"I am extremely humbled and honored to receive this award on behalf of all the institutes, medical centers and oncology groups I'm associated with. Through this work, we are trying to improve things for every patient," said Dr. Von Hoff, who holds the titles of Physician-in-Chief and Distinguished Professor at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen); Professor of Medicine at both Mayo Clinic and at the University of Arizona College of Medicine; and Chief Scientific Officer at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare and at US Oncology.

Dr. Von Hoff is recognized as one of the world's leading authorities on pancreatic cancer. Some of his most recent work involves the comparative analysis of the fully sequenced genomes of patients with rare cancers and with triple-negative breast cancer, identifying the mutations in the DNA of the patients' tumors and using that information to help guide future treatment of this rare and challenging disease.

Dr. Eric J. Topol, Director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute (STSI), presented the Genomic Medicine award to Dr. Von Hoff, citing his "pioneering efforts" in whole genome sequencing as a tool for matching a patient's genetic makeup with treatments that will provide the best quality of life.

"Dr. Von Hoff's work represents the future of medicine, in which information gleaned from the complex assemblage of an individual's DNA can be used to target deadly tumors, even among patients with rare cancers," said Dr. Top
