M. D. Anderson neurosurgeon, Amy Heimberger, M.D., receives presidential award
Date:12/19/2008

HOUSTON - Amy Heimberger, M.D., associate professor of neurosurgery at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center has received a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), in recognition for her research on the central nervous system's immune biology, tumor evasion of immune detection and immunotherapeutic approaches for patients with malignant gliomas.

Heimberger was presented the award today by John H. Marburger III, Science Advisor to the President and Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Director, in a White House ceremony.

She is the first M. D. Anderson faculty member to receive the distinction - one of the most prestigious awards honoring investigators in the early stages of promising careers - since its inception in 1996. The award is the highest honor bestowed by the United States government on scientists and engineers beginning careers.

With the award, Heimberger's research grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) studying the role of immunotherapy in glioma, will be automatically renewed.

"This Presidential award is a tremendous distinction for Dr. Heimberger, as it recognizes her many and continuing contributions to an area of cancer in need of much research - therapy for glioblastoma and other brain cancers," said Raymond DuBois, M.D., Ph.D., provost and executive vice president of M. D. Anderson. "Just as important is the award's premise that it supports the achievements of young scientists early in their independent research careers. Nurturing those accomplished scientists, like Dr. Heimberger, is paramount to both the future of cancer research, and the overall field of scientific discovery."

Heimberger became intrigued with research while working as a Howard Hughes Medical Institute research associate at Washington University School of Medicine, where she designed a transgenic murine model that now is used throughout the
