How Your Support Helps

 

 

Friends Research Scholars

The Friends Research Scholar award nurtures innovative cancer research and supports early- to mid-career scientists working in areas central to the mission of the Cancer Center.

In 2013-2014 we are proud to support the work of Gregory J. Tsongalis, Director of Molecular Pathology, as he develops molecular diagnostic technologies and applications for rapid diagnosis of human cancers.
