2015 Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine

Description

235-x-350-pixels_Ross-PrizeThe annual Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine, established by the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and Molecular Medicine, is awarded to an active investigator who has produced innovative research that is worthy of gaining attention in the field of molecular medicine. The accomplishments of the Ross Prize winner reflect a rapidly-rising career trajectory of discovery and invention.

The 2015 Ross Prize in Molecular Medicine will be awarded to Lewis C. Cantley, PhD, the Meyer Director of the Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, for his critical discoveries regarding signaling pathways in cancer cells. Dr. Cantley will be honored for this achievement on June 8 at the New York Academy of Sciences in Manhattan, followed by an academic lecture by Dr. Cantley and other preeminent researchers.

Dr. Cantley discovered the phosphoinositide 3-kinases (PI3K), which are critical for cell growth, proliferation, and survival. Following this discovery, he demonstrated that activity-enhancing mutations in PI3K were present in several types of human cancer, and he continued to investigate small molecule inhibitors of PI3K that are now approved for use in the treatment of cancer.
