Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Receives Four Year, $231K Grant To Study Pediatric Brain Cancer

Posted by Emily Norwood on Mon, Aug 13, 2018

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.

CU Anschutz, Sciences Institute awarded $46.5M Grant from NIH

Posted by Gloria Beverage on Fri, Jul 06, 2018

Colorado University Anschutz Medical Campus and its partner, Colorado Clinical and Transitional Sciences Institute (CCTSI), recently received a new five-year $46.5 million grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH).

“The general public may not know the CCTSI name,” Dr. Sokol, CCTSI director and professor of pediatrics in the School of Medicine, stated in an article for CU Anschutz Today. “But they have probably benefited from the research that has come out of our institute over the past 10 years.”

Since its inception, Institute staff have conducted research that has led to a cure for hepatitis C; developed treatments for cystic fibrosis; boosted the rates of health screenings in underserved Colorado communities; and developed community-based approaches to teaching CPR.
