Second AGA Foundation/Bernard Lee Schwartz Foundation Research Scholar Award presented
Date:4/27/2010

The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Foundation for Digestive Health and Nutrition (FDHN) announced this year's recipient of the Bernard Lee Schwartz Foundation Research Scholar Award Kenneth P. Olive, PhD. The $225,000 gift from the Bernard Lee Schwartz Foundation will provide Dr. Olive with funding and protected time for three years to focus on basic science related to pancreatic cancer. Mr. Schwartz, a businessman and photographer, suffered from the disease and died in 1978 at the age of 64. His family has honored his memory by establishing this new three-year Research Scholar Award for pancreatic cancer research.

Dr. Olive has focused his research on digestive diseases, specifically towards identifying better treatment modalities for pancreatic cancer. He has already made several important research contributions, including first-authoring papers in Cell, Science, Cancer Research and Clinical Cancer Research. His research efforts have also been recognized by the American Association for Cancer Research and the National Institutes of Health.

Described by colleagues as an innovative investigator and an emerging star in the field of pancreatic cancer work, Dr. Olive will focus his research on the influence of hedgehog pathway inhibition on pancreatic cancer metastasis.

"The research support provided by the Bernard Lee Schwartz Foundation is helping to answer important questions in the study of pancreatic cancer," said Sidney Cohen, MD, AGAF, chair of the AGA foundation. "The research funded by the Bernard L. Schwartz Research Scholar Award in Pancreatic Cancer will continue to contribute to the advancement of our knowledge of the early detection and treatment of this devastating disease. We are most grateful for the Schwartz family's continued confidence in the research scholars of the AGA foundation."

This is the second Research Scholar Award in Pancreatic Cancer funded by the Bernard Lee Schwartz Foundatio
