CSHL scientist recognized for accelerating cancer gene research
Date:12/10/2007

Dr. Lars Zender, a senior clinical postdoctoral fellow at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) was recently awarded a $40,000 grant for his seminal contributions in the field of cancer biology and epigenomics. The grant, presented at the second annual Cracking the Code with the Bear Research Symposium, will fund Zenders ongoing cancer research.

At CSHL, Zender studies the genetics and biology of hepatocellular carcinoma, a primary cancer of the liver, and the third leading cause of cancer death worldwide. For the last four years, he has partnered with various CSHL research teams to develop a unique mouse model for liver cancer research, which enabled him to identify new tumor suppressor genes in liver cancer.

Lars has done an outstanding job integrating work with mouse cancer models, cancer genomics, and RNA interference to identify genes that contribute to human cancer, said Scott Lowe, Ph.D., deputy director of the CSHL Cancer Center and Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. His approach shifts the paradigm. The genes he has identified suggest new approaches for treating cancer. This award is a wonderful recognition of both his current impact and future potential.

The symposium, sponsored by the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation in Chicago, IL, provides a forum for ten exceptional post-doctoral scientists from prominent institutions in the US and Canada to present their current cancer research. The Bear Foundation selected the presenters based on nominations received from mentors and senior leaders in their field of research. In addition to Zender, two other CSHL postdoctoral fellows presented their research. Dr. Danielle Irvine spoke about her work on the role of RNAi-mediated epigenetic genome regulation, and Dr. Julius Brennecke presented his work on piRNAs in the Drosophila germline.

To have three of the ten qualifying participants at the symposium representing Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is impre
