Chung's Novel Hedgehog Pathway Research Benefits from Lisa Fund

The 2011 Fight Colorectal Cancer-AACR Fellowship, in memory of Lisa Dubow, has been awarded to Jon H. Chung, PhD  from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His proposed research is Hedgehog Pathway Targeted Therapeutics for Metastatic Colorectal Cancer. With the award, Dr. Chung will study alternatives to the traditional Hedgehog signaling pathway in colon cancer cells.  He will explore crosstalk within the cell between the Hedgehog and Wnt pathways and screen for drugs that block both pathways at the same time, potentially stopping cancer development.
