5th Annual Szent-Gyorgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research Awarded to Peter K. Vogt, Ph.D., The Scripps Research Institute
Date:3/16/2010

BETHESDA, Md., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Foundation for Cancer Research announced today that renowned scientist Peter K. Vogt, Ph.D., Professor in the Department of Molecular and Experimental Medicine at The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California, is the recipient of the 5th Annual Szent-Gyorgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research.

Dr. Vogt's research, which began on a humble chicken virus in the early 1960s, has profoundly changed biology and medicine. His groundbreaking discovery of src, the first cancer-causing gene, or oncogene, launched a new era for cancer research and made seminal contributions to our present understanding of the role of oncogenes, proto-oncogenes and many other critical molecular mechanisms of cancer. Today, he continues to be a leader in cancer research, including initiatives that use some of the most important oncogenes as therapeutic targets -- initiatives that are bringing renewed hope to cancer patients.

"Dr. Vogt's fundamental basic science discovery of cancer-causing genes in retroviruses shed the first light on the genetic paradigm that now dominates our understanding of cancer development in humans," said Ronald A. DePinho, M.D., Chair of the Szent-Gyorgyi Prize Selection Committee and last year's recipient. "His groundbreaking work has yielded several of the
