Rushika Perera recieves Damon Runyan-Rachleff Innovator Award.

2017 The Department of Anatomy’s own Rushika Perera has been awarded as one of nine recipients of the Damon Runyan-Rachleff Innovator Award.

The Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Award funds cancer research by exceptionally creative thinkers with “high-risk/high-reward” ideas who lack sufficient preliminary data to obtain traditional funding. The awardees are selected through a highly competitive and rigorous process by a scientific committee comprised of leading cancer researchers who are innovators themselves. Only those scientists with a clear vision and passion for curing cancer are selected to receive the prestigious award.

Congratulations Rushika.
