St. Jude scientist named Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator
Date:5/9/2013

ric Cancer Genome Project, an effort to decode the genomes of childhood cancer patients and identify the genetic missteps that lead to disease.

Through the HHMI Investigator Program, scientists are provided salary, benefits and a research budget during their initial five-year appointment. The initiative represents an investment in basic biomedical research of approximately $150 million. This year's groups of investigators hail from 19 institutions and represent a variety of scientific disciplines.

Dyer joined the St. Jude faculty in 2002 and quickly emerged as a leader in the study of retinoblastoma. He has received numerous honors and awards, including the 2008 Cogan Award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, a Career Development Award from Research to Prevent Blindness, as well as that organization's Lew R. Wasserman Merit Award. Dyer was also selected as a Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences and was named an HHMI Early Career Scientist. He received his doctoral degree in molecular and cellular biology from Harvard University and completed his postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School.

Dyer joins St. Jude researchers Charles Sherr , M.D., Ph.D., and Brenda Schulman , Ph.D., in holding HHMI investigator designations. The new HHMI investigators begin their appointments in September 2013.
