Mendelsohn elected to American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Date:4/25/2013

l health outcomes.

As director of MD Anderson's personalized cancer treatment institute, he leads efforts to tailor cancer treatment to individual patients by analyzing tumor genetics to match an optimal, targeted therapy to their disease.

Mendelsohn is a pioneer in the development of targeted therapy. His research on how the binding of growth factors to receptors on the surface of cells regulates cell functions led to his development of an antibody to block growth signals to the epidermal growth factor receptor. The resultant drug, known as cetuximab or Erbitux, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat colon and head and neck cancers.

Academy fellows announced Wednesday are an eclectic group, including a variety of scientists and professionals as well as singer Bruce Springsteen, actor Robert DeNiro and novelist Annie Dillard.

Mendelsohn served for 10 years as the founding editor-in-chief of the journal, Clinical Cancer Research, and on numerous editorial boards. He has been honored many times for his contributions to cancer research with major awards, including the Joseph H. Burchenal Clinical Research Award from the American Association for Cancer Research (1999), the David A. Karnofsky Memorial Award from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (2002), the Fulbright Lifetime Achievement Medal (2005), the Dan David Prize in Cancer Therapy (2006), the Dorothy P. Landon AACR Prize for Translational Research (2008), and the Sixth Annual AACR Margaret Foti Award for Leadership and Extraordinary Achievements in Cancer Research (2012).

New fellows of the American Academy will be inducted at a ceremony Oct. 12 at the academy's headquarters in Cambridge. A list of the honorees for 2013 is posted at https://www.amacad.org/members.aspx.
