National Lung Cancer Partnership announces 2009 career development recipient
Date:1/16/2009

MADISON, Wis. Jan. 12, 2009 The National Lung Cancer Partnership is pleased to announce I-Ching Wang, Ph.D. of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center the recipient of the 2009 Career Development Award.

The $80,000 grant provides two years of protected time for new investigators to develop their careers in lung cancer research.

The award will support Dr. Wang's research with FoxM1, a protein that binds to specific parts of DNA and plays a role in supporting aggressive growth of lung cancer tumors.

"Understanding how FoxM1 contributes to lung cancer could lead to protein-directed therapies and the eventual elimination or control of the number one cancer killer in the U.S.," said Dr. Joan Schiller, president of the National Lung Cancer Partnership and chief of hematology/oncology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
