Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation awards prestigious fellowships to 14 top young investigators
Date:6/19/2008

New York, NY-- The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation named 14 new Damon Runyon Fellows at its May 2008 Fellowship Award Committee review. The recipients of this prestigious, three-year award are outstanding postdoctoral scientists conducting basic and translational cancer research in the laboratories of leading senior investigators across the country. The Fellowship is specifically intended to encourage the nation's most promising young investigators to pursue careers in cancer research by providing them with independent funding to work on innovative projects. The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation has committed more than $200 million to support the careers of cancer researchers across the United States since the program's inception.

May 2008 Damon Runyon Fellows

  • Laura A. Banaszynski, PhD, [Angelo Family Fellow] with her sponsor C. David Allis, PhD, at The Rockefeller University, New York, New York, is studying how modifications of proteins called histones regulate gene expression and maintain genome stability. Understanding the misregulation of these modifications will lead to a greater understanding of tumor initiation and progression.

  • Sarah K. Bowman, PhD, with her sponsor Robert E. Kingston, PhD, at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, is investigating how the position of nucleosomes, proteins that package DNA, contributes to heritable gene silencing. This will provide insight into how tumor suppressor genes are inactivated during carcinogenesis.

  • Lee Stirling Churchman, PhD, with her sponsor Jonathan S. Weissman, PhD, at the University of California, San Francisco, California, is exploring the cell engulfment process called endocytosis using quantitative RNAi-based genetic interaction maps. Understanding endocytosis is directly relevant to cancers involving viral entry and indirectly involved in most cancers due to its integral role in intercellular signaling.'/>"/>
