Congratulations to Justin Wong

Congratulations to Justin Wong, PhD candidate in Dr. Neil Renwick’s group, on his publication “Classifying lung neuroendocrine neoplasms through microRNA sequence data mining” in the upcoming edition of Cancers. In this paper, Justin uses machine learning to identify microRNA expression biomarkers that accurately identify lung neuroendocrine tumor subtypes. These exciting results establish a foundation for a novel diagnosis method.

Dr. Paola Nasute Fauerbach

Bruce and Janet Elliott Graduate Award in Transdisciplinary Cancer Research

Congratulations to Dr. Paola Nasute Fauerbach, winner of the 2019-2020 Bruce and Janet Elliott Graduate Award in Transdisciplinary Cancer Research.  Paola comes to our program with a wealth of knowledge as a clinician doing breast and lung cancer radiology.  Paola is a PhD student in Dr. David Berman’s lab and her research involves studying clinical practise in breast conserving tumor resection and developing improved approaches to minimize positive margins and avoid re-operation.  She has recently submitted a manuscript describing her findings in this important translational research project.  We wish her success with that submission and with completing her PhD.
