patients affected by cancer."

Lozano celebrates her 25th anniversary at MD Anderson this year. Over the course of her career, she has published 179 peer-reviewed articles in prestigious scientific journals, reviews and book chapters . She has devoted extensive efforts to teaching young scientists, an aspect of her work that she finds exceptionally rewarding.

"Not only do I love teaching and helping those who want to learn, but I also enjoy the two-way learning that takes place between the generations and the insights that occur as both aim to push the progress of cancer research," Lozano said. Twenty-five graduate students have received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees under her direction and she has trained 34 postdoctoral students and fellows in her lab.

She credits the mentorship of Arnold Levine, Ph.D., her postgraduate advisor at Princeton University and the discoverer of p53, and Peter Mueller of the Max Planck Institute for their guidance early in and throughout her career. "Their invaluable perspective has driven me to reach for goals I might never have dreamed of," Lozano said. She also is thankful for the support of her husband and daughter noting, "They keep me from doing too much at once."

Her research program has been supported by continuous funding from the National Cancer Institute. Other honors include the Sixth Annual AACR-Minorities in Cancer Research Jane Cooke Wright Lectureship and a position on the Scientific Advisory Committee for Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C). She was elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2011. Lozano is a distinguished alumnus of both University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and The University of Texas Pan American. Lozano received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University and completed post-graduate work at Princeton University.
