Fred Hutch Pancreatic cancer researcher Dr. Sunil Hingorani has won a three-year, $1.8 million grant from the federal Cancer Moonshot program, the signature initiative of former Vice President Joseph Biden. Hingorani is one of six collaborators nationwide who received funding this fall for a new research consortium focused on the biological context of pancreatic tumors — such as nearby immune cells or blood vessels — which can have a major impact on a tumor’s vulnerability to treatment.
Dr. Nancy Davidson, former VP Joe Biden and other cancer leaders share insights about disease that touches so many; Novel ‘barcode’ tracking of T cells in immunotherapy patients identifies likely cancer killers; and Fred Hutch/UW graduate student Qing Feng among this year’s 13 Weintraub award winners.
