University of Pittsburgh scientist honored for major accomplishment in cancer research

genes that have proven useful in understanding the properties of other tumor viruses.

"We are studying the genes in KSHV to gain insights into the processes in cells that lead to cancer," Dr. Chang said. "The virus carries genetic material that causes cancer into cells. We are finding that the same pathways affected by these viral genes also are altered in cancers not caused by viruses," she said.

The Marks Prize, named after Paul A. Marks, president emeritus of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, recognizes significant contributions to the basic understanding and treatment of cancer by scientists no more than 45 years of age. The winners were selected by a committee chaired by Jeffrey M. Friedman, M.D., Ph.D., of the Rockefeller University and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
