Dr. Munson named Emerging Leader in Brain Cancer Research
Dr. Munson was recently named an Emerging Leader in Brain Cancer Resarch by the Ivy Foundation. This award comes with $500,000 to move her work towards a more clinical application so that patients can see new treatments. She will be combining her in vitro tissue engineered models that can be developed in a patient-specific manner with a novel target against brain cancer progression that specifically acts in regions of heightened fluid flow. Dr. Munson will lead her team which includes Samantha Howerton, Dr. Peng Jin, and Dr. Sharon Michelhaugh, to work on this over the next two years.
