Scientist honored for studies of genetic influence on chemotherapy, tumor development

Scott W. Lowe, Ph.D., professor and deputy director at the cancer center of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., is the recipient of the fourth American Association for Cancer Research-National Foundation for Cancer Research Professorship in Basic Cancer Research for greatly enlarging our understanding of the genetic factors that influence the aging and death of cancer cells.

The professorship was established in 2000 in honor of NFCR founders Tamara and Franklin Salisbury, Sr., to recognize a senior scientist at the level of associate professor or professor who currently is engaged in an active research career anywhere in the world, and who has demonstrated extraordinary achievement in basic cancer research. It is awarded to an individual who shows promise for continued substantive contributions to basic cancer research, and is intended to foster the research productivity of the recipient by enabling him or her to devote more time to basic research. The professorship provides a one-year grant of $50,000 in support of direct research expenses, beginning July 1, 2004.

Of the several awards given by the AACR the world's oldest and largest professional society representing cancer scientists from the United States and more than 60 other countries the AACR-NFCR professorship honors and fosters world class accomplishments among scientists still at a relatively early stage of their careers in basic research, clinical care, therapeutics and prevention.

"Dr. Lowe's finding that genetic mutations influence the selection of cancer cells for programmed cell death puts him at the threshold of significant advances in chemotherapy," said AACR chief executive officer Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), adding, "His accomplishments to date are evidence of his potential for further stellar work in cancer research.

"In addition to his demonstration that mutations in the p53 tumor suppressor gene are a prim
