Thanks from…and for…a Lisa Fund Researcher

Pausing today to give thanks for this amazing Fight Colorectal Cancer community, we’d like to especially salute the doctors, nurses, family and friends who work every single day to support people living with colorectal cancer, and to the researchers who devote endless days and nights fighting this disease. Just before the holiday, we got a final progress report from Dr. Jon Chung, who received the 2011 Lisa Fund grant.  Every single dollar that supported his work came from this community of people who donated to the Lisa Fund, so you should know what your generous donations brought: “I am extremely grateful for the award of this grant.

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.
