Dr. Jay F. Sarthy of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has been awarded a $231,000 grant over the next four years from The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation as one of five scientists receiving the Damon Runyon-Sohn Pediatric Cancer Fellowship Award. The award will be used to study pediatric brain cancer with the ultimate goal being the development of new drugs to restore the ability of cells to package DNA correctly eliminating cancer. Under the mentorship of Dr. Steven Henikoff, a geneticist, and Dr. Jim Olson, a neuro-oncologist, Sarthy will try to develop new affordable methods of studying epigenetics and DNA packaging in pediatric cancer.Read More
