M. D. Anderson's Cohen honored for contributions to traditional Chinese medicine
Date:12/16/2008

HOUSTON - Lorenzo Cohen, Ph.D., Director of the Integrative Medicine Program at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center is the recipient of the 2007 International Scientific and Technological Cooperation Award of Shanghai Municipality (ISTCASM) and the 2008 Magnolia Memorial Award for his contributions in furthering research into the use of traditional Chinese medicine in cancer therapies.

The prestigious awards, established by the Shanghai Municipality People's Government, recognize individuals and international organizations that make outstanding contributions to the city. The ISTCASM award has been presented since 2006 to those who advance scientific and technological development in Shanghai. The Magnolia Memorial Award, named after the city's official flower, was created by the municipal government in 1989 to show appreciation to expatriates who live in Shanghai and contribute to the city's economic performance, international relations, business environment, management standards and community development. Cohen was selected based on the merit of his scientific collaboration with faculty from Fudan University Cancer Hospital in Shanghai.

Cohen and his M. D. Anderson colleagues have worked closely with researchers in the Department of Integrative Oncology at Fudan University Cancer Hospital over the past five years, and in 2005 the teams were awarded a $2.15 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to expand ongoing laboratory and clinical research studies of herbal and natural-based products as sources for new cancer therapies. M. D. Anderson and Fudan University Cancer Hospital signed a sister-institution agreement in 2003 that formalized a framework for educational, clinical and research exchange programs.

"I am extremely honored to accept these awards and extend my deep appreciation to my colleagues at Fudan University and the city of Shanghai for making this partnership possible," said Cohen. "Together
