Damon Runyon names new class of rising stars in cancer research

New York, NY -- The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation named 18 new Damon Runyon Fellows at its May 2007 Scientific Advisory Committee review. The recipients of this prestigious, three-year award are outstanding postdoctoral scientists conducting basic and translational cancer research in the laboratories of leading senior investigators across the country. The Fellowship is specifically intended to encourage the nation's most promising young investigators to pursue careers in cancer research by providing them with independent funding to work on innovative projects. The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation has committed more than $140 million to support the careers of cancer researchers across the United States since the programs inception.
