St. Jude Scientist Named Pew Scholar
Date:6/16/2009

Charles Mullighan, M.D., Ph.D., becomes fourth St. Jude scientist honored

MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Charles Mullighan, M.D., Ph.D., an assistant member in the Pathology Department at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, has been named a 2009 Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences.

Selected by The Pew Charitable Trusts as one of 17 of the country's most promising early-career scientists, Mullighan will receive a $240,000 award over four years to support his research.

"Dr. Mullighan's appointment as a Pew Scholar is further validation of his remarkable accomplishments at this early stage in his career and the potential he has as a physician-scientist to make major discoveries in the future," said Dr. William E. Evans, St. Jude director and CEO. "We are fortunate to have Dr. Mullighan as one of a strong group of junior faculty who ensure the future success of St. Jude."

Mullighan's research focuses on the use of high-resolution, genome-wide approaches to identify genomic aberrations contributing to leukemogenesis and influencing leukemia outcome; the use of in vitro and in vivo experimental approaches to model genomic abnormalities in leukemogenesis; and the genetics of disease susceptibility and disease phenotype, most notably the genetic determinants of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant outcome.

"Being named a Pew Scholar is a tremendous honor and will provide very important support at this stage of my career," Mullighan said. "The award also reflects the exceptional research environment at St. Jude that has enabled the work recognized by the scholarship to be performed."

Pew Scholars are junior faculty members at medical schools and research institutions who show outstanding promise in research that is related to the advancement of human health.
