JeanMarie Houghton, MD, PhD, recognized as one of nation's top young scientists
Date:11/1/2007

WORCESTER, Mass. University of Massachusetts Medical School Associate Professor of Medicine and Cancer Biology JeanMarie Houghton, MD, PhD, was recognized today as one of the countrys most talented rising scientific stars in a White House ceremony applauding the 2006 recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) Awards. The Presidential Award is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on outstanding scientists and engineers beginning their independent careers. Granted to a select group of professionals each year, the awards are intended to recognize and nurture some of the finest scientists and engineers who, while early in their research careers, show exceptional potential for leadership at the frontiers of scientific knowledge during the twenty-first century.

I am absolutely astounded and feel very fortunate to have been chosen for this award, said Dr. Houghton. It is such a meaningful validation of our work to have our ideas and ambitions recognized at the national level. It demonstrates the faith the government and the National Institutes of Health puts not only in the work of my lab but also in the Medical School as a whole, affirming that this is the right kind of work happening at the right place.

"The outstanding and innovative work of Dr. Houghton demonstrates how young physician-scientists can make breakthrough discoveries by asking the right questions. We are very fortunate and very proud to have her as a member of our team," said Terry R. Flotte, MD, executive deputy chancellor of UMMS and dean of the School of Medicine

A member of the Medical School faculty since 2001, Houghton is broadly interested in the contribution of stem cells to cancer. In 2004, Houghton and colleagues published stunning findings in Science that provided a radically different view of the origins of gastric cancers, identifying an unexpected link between stomach cancer and bone marrow-derived
