BCB-IGERT alumnus Alain Laederach (PhD Spring 2003, major professors Pete Reilly and Amy Andreotti) has been awarded a Damon Runyan Cancer Research Fellowship for three years of postdoctoral work. The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation "is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing cancer research. It encourages the nation's most promising young investigators to pursue careers in cancer research by funding initial postdoctoral Fellowship Awards, Scholar Awards and Clinical Investigator Awards. (The) Fellowship Award supports the training of the brightest young postdoctoral scientists as they embark upon their research careers. This funding enables them to be trained by established investigators in leading research laboratories across the country." (Quoted from the Damon Runyon website.) Alain is doing his postdoctoral research in the Genetics Department at Stanford University. Nice going, Alain! We're so proud of you!
