Peers elect MD Anderson's Hung and Lozano as Fellows of AAAS
Date:1/12/2011

HOUSTON - Innovative insights into a vital tumor-suppressing mechanism that is often broken in malignant cells and a type of receptor protein that frequently goes haywire to stimulate cancer growth have earned two scientists at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center membership in a distinguished association of scholars.

Mien-Chie Hung, Ph.D., vice president for basic research, professor and chair of MD Anderson's Department of Molecular and Cellular Oncology, and Guillermina Lozano, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Genetics, have been elected fellows in the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

"Outstanding basic science research provides the foundation for improving cancer treatment and prevention," said Raymond DuBois, M.D., Ph.D., executive vice president and provost at MD Anderson. "Election as AAAS Fellows recognizes Mien-Chie Hung and Guillermina Lozano for their leadership in uncovering the molecular details that reveal how cancer develops, grows and might be eliminated."

Both scientists, DuBois noted, also work closely with clinicians to translate their findings to clinical applications.

New fellows will be inducted in a ceremony on Feb. 19 at the AAAS annual meeting in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1848, the AAAS is the world's largest general scientific society. Nominations are offered by at least three existing fellows in one of the association's 24 sections, or by the section's steering group, or by the AAAS chief executive officer. The steering groups review nominations and send a final list to the AAAS Council for a vote.

After Hung and Lozano are inducted, MD Anderson will have 11 AAAS members on its faculty.

In its announcement, the AAAS cited Hung for "distinguished contributions to novel findings about how receptor tyrosine kinases operate, which have generated a paradigm-shift on receptor biology with important clinical implications."
