Three Researchers Awarded 2012 Refunds for Research Grants

Thanks to the generosity of state taxpayers, three researchers will be awarded grants through the PBCC’s 2012 Refunds for Breast and Cervical Cancer Research initiative. Allan Lipton, M.D. of the Penn State College of Medicine, Andy Minn, M.D., Ph.D. of the University of Pennsylvania, and Takemi Tanaka, Ph.D. of Thomas Jefferson University will each receive a $50,000 grant to be used during this calendar year on their respective research projects.

All three researchers’ topics deal with the issue of metastases. Dr. Lipton’s research focus is Predicting Response to HER2-Targeted Therapy. The focus of Dr. Minn’s research is Identification of Metastasis Signaling Pathways That Regulate and Predict Organ-Specific Metastasis. Dr. Tanaka’s research centers on Prevention of Breast Cancer Metastases.

The PBCC’s Refunds for Research grants are made possible through contributions from state taxpayers who choose to contribute all or part of their state income tax refund to the program. Every penny raised through state taxpayers’ contributions goes to fund research happening right here in Pennsylvania.

A public kick-off event for the 2012 Refunds for Research campaign will be held on Monday, March 12 at 2:30 pm in the Main Rotunda at the Capitol Building in Harrisburg. Another event will be held in Philadelphia in early February at a time and location to be determined. Join us in recognizing these three talented researchers and thanking Pennsylvania taxpayers for their continued support of this crucial program.

Initially you will do very well, and then it will start and gradually get worse.”
