Tsai wins innovator award for plan to map molecular path to skin cancer

amples of all three types of tissue from each patient. This is a key advantage, because comparing different tissue types among different people would introduce greater variability into his results.

The award, for $100,000 spread over two years, is one of three Landon awards given annually. MD Anderson scientist Guang Peng, Ph.D. assistant professor in the Department of Cancer Prevention, won the 2012 award for cancer prevention research.

Duncan Family Institute seed grant paved way

"I thought of this project almost two years but had no resources to begin," Tsai said "Then I received a seed grant from the Duncan Family Institute for Cancer Prevention and Risk Assessment, which enabled me to get going and provided the data we needed to compete for the Landon award."

The Duncan Family Institute is part of MD Anderson's Division of Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences. The project is a collaboration among basic scientists, bioinformatics and gene sequencing experts and dermatologists.

The AACR will honor the award recipients at a grants reception and dinner Tuesday night in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

In addition to the cancer prevention award, there are also the Sixth Annual Landon Foundation-AACR INNOVATOR Award for International Collaboration in Cancer Research and the Fourth Annual Landon Foundation-AACR INNOVATOR Award for Research in Personalized Cancer Medicine.

The Landon Foundation-AACR INNOVATOR Awards, established in 2008, are designed to foster innovation and collaboration in cancer research and support independent investigators early in their careers. The awards provide recognition and data to use to apply for additional funding.
