PHOENIX, Ariz. March 18, 2009 Dr. Daniel Von Hoff, Physician-In-Chief of the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), has won an award recognizing his achievements in cancer research.

This is the second major award in recent months for Dr. Von Hoff, a world-renowned cancer scientist and one of the leading experts in pancreatic cancer.

  • Study of pancreatic and other forms of cancer.

  • Dedication to teaching.

  • Entrepreneurial research efforts, which have led to 12 patents.

Through the three-year-old partnership between TGen and Scottsdale Healthcare, Dr. Von Hoff leads a nearly 40-member staff in the research and treatment of cancer. TCRS at Scottsdale Healthcare is conducting 35 ongoing studies, involving the treatment of many patients with advanced cancer. The alliance works to identify new anti-cancer agents, and strives to bring diagnostic and treatment options to patients as fast as possible.

Dr. Von Hoff earned his medical degree from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. He held an internship and residency at the University of California, San Francisco; conducted four years of cancer research at the National Cancer Institute; and worked as a faculty member at the University of Texas.
