Stowers Institute scientist named American Cancer Society research professor

KANSAS CITY, MO. (Nov. 8, 2004) -- Scott Hawley, Ph.D., investigator at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, has been named an American Cancer Society (The Society) Research Professor. This designation carries an award of $300,000 over five years with the possibility of an additional five-year renewal. The Society funding of Dr. Hawley's work will begin on Jan. 1, 2005.

"The Society Research Professorship is tremendously well respected in the scientific community," said Dr. Hawley. "I am honored to join the ranks of distinguished scientists who have held this designation, and I look forward to continuing my research at the Stowers Institute with the support of The Society.

The Society Professorships are among the most prestigious research grants awarded by the organization.

"These awards are given to mid-career investigators who have made significant contributions in cancer research. Scott Hawley has been a true leader in his field and will continue to make significant contributions over the next five to 10 years," said David Ringer, scientific program director of the Research Department for the American Cancer Society.

The awards are made through a highly competitive peer review process. Only one or two professors in each category are usually appointed in any year. The Society dedicates more money to cancer research than any other not-for-profit, non-government funder of cancer research in the United States, spending over $100 million each year.

Dr. Hawley's lab investigates the mechanisms by which cells transmit genetic information during routine cell division (mitosis) and during the process of creating gametes (meiosis). Many cancer cells gain or lose chromosomes during abnormal cell divisions that accompany malignant transformation. A clearer view of how chromosomes are properly transmitted during cell division has direct implications for understanding cancer.
