Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

DESCRIPTION: (Applicant's Description) The objective of this application is
to develop a mentorship program in cancer genetics at New York University
School of Medicine. The model that the applicant has chosen is based on his
own work for identifying high-risk genes and other genetic risk factors for
the development of prostate cancer. The applicant is a highly-qualified
medical geneticist with considerable experience in clinically-oriented, human
genetics research and in mentoring students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty
members in clinical genetics research. This is an opportune time for
developing such as new program as the Kaplan Comprehensive Cancer Center, NYU
School of Medicine and its new Dean have made the development of a
patient-oriented, translational research program the highest priority of the
institution.
