Chou Awarded 2009 Lisa Fund Grant

Jeffrey Chou, M.D.,Ph.D., is the recipient of the 2009 AACR-Colorectal Cancer Coalition Fellows Grant in memory of Lisa Dubow. Dr. Chou, a researcher at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center at the University of Washington in Seattle, will study how to make colorectal cancer stem cells more vulnerable to the body’s immune system. The award will be made at the AACR’s 100th Annual Meeting in Denver.  Funds for the grant were raised by C3 through the Lisa Fund. Donations to the fund are targeted for research to develop treatments for patients with late-stage colorectal cancer.
