Congratulations to KI members Michael Yaffe, Graham Walker, and Robert Weinberg for receiving National Institutes of Health (NIH) Outstanding Investigator Awards from two NIH institutes. Yaffe, the David H. Koch Professor of Science, and Walker, an American Cancer Society Professor, received their respective awards through the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences; both investigators' work concerns cellular response to DNA damage. Robert Weinberg, a Daniel K. Ludwig Professor for Cancer Research and director of the KI's Ludwig Center for Molecular Oncology, has been given his Outstanding Investigator Award through the National Cancer Institute to further his investigations of metastasis. All three awards aim to support accomplished researchers as they "embark on long-term projects of unusual potential." Read more.
