world to study peptide-specific immunological responses. After earning a medical degree from Washington University in 1995, she completed postgraduate training in neurosurgery and neuro-oncology research at Duke University Medical Center.

Recruited to M. D. Anderson in 2002, Heimberger directs her own lab, coordinates novel clinical trials and cares for many brain tumor patients. Heimberger's translational research focuses on the epidermal growth factor variant III protein, which occurs in about one-third of those with glioblastoma. She has directly applied her laboratory evaluations of the immune responses within the tumor micro-environment to design pivotal immunotherapy clinical trials for patients with glioblastoma.

"This award bestowed upon Dr. Heimberger is recognition of her personal and professional commitment to making lives better for those with brain cancer," said Raymond Sawaya, M.D., professor and chair of M. D. Anderson's Department of Neurosurgery. "I'm extremely proud of Dr. Heimberger ? her translational research discoveries have helped M. D. Anderson lead the way in accelerating the transition of basic knowledge into the clinic for our patients in greatest need."

Among her many other awards and distinctions, Heimberger most recently received a major institutional recognition, the Faculty Scholar Award. She's also received the American Association of Neurological Surgeons' Young Clinical Investigator of the Year Award in 2006, and her research discoveries have been reported in numerous peer-reviewed journals and conferences around the world. Heimberger's research is supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Brain Tumor Society, the National Brain Tumor Foundation, and numerous pharmaceutical companies.
