“Many cancers either fail to respond to a single targeted therapy or acquire resistance after initially responding. The notion that combining targeted therapies is a far more effective way to treat cancer than a single-drug approach has long existed. We wanted to perform screens with saturating coverage to understand exactly what combinations should be explored,”

This medal is given by the Reeve-Irvine Research Center at the University of California Irvine to researchers who have made recent critical contributions to promoting repair of the damaged spinal cord, recovery of function and/or improvement of quality of life for people living with spinal cord injury. The Medal is to recognize “…the most meritorious science, a proven body of work that has withstood the test of time and scrutiny, as well as other enriching contributions to the field”.
