David Sabatini, MD, PhD, of MBBP client Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, was awarded the prestigious five-year renewable American Cancer Society Research Professorship. The award is part of a larger approval of funding for 78 research and training grants totaling $39,836,250.

According to the press release, Sabatini “looks to maximize the precise targeting of cancer drugs into the relevant tissues by exploiting the specificity of transport proteins embedded in lipid membranes on the surface and within cells. If successful, this approach could address a major challenge in drug delivery and could lead to safer and more effective cancer therapies.”

Congratulations to Mr. Sabatini. More information can be found in the press release.
