Eklund Named Chair of NIH Study Section
Elizabeth Eklund, MD, Professor of Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a member of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, has been named Chair of the Molecular Oncogenesis (MONC) Study Section of the National Institutes of Health’s Center for Scientific Review.
The Molecular Oncogenesis [MONC] Study Section reviews applications that focus on the early molecular and cellular events that lead to immortalization and oncogenic transformation utilizing biochemical, cellular, and animal model systems, with more translational studies in human cells. The emphasis is on the transformation of the normal stem and/or differentiated cell to a cell fully capable of causing cancer. Applications using either embryonic stem cells or reprogrammed induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells to study oncogenic cellular transformation are also covered by this study section.
