Vanderbilt’s Robert Coffey Jr., M.D., has received an Outstanding Investigator Award from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) — more than $6.6 million over seven years — to support studies aimed at advancing the diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer (CRC), a leading cancer killer.
“This discovery was a real team effort,” said first author Danielle Dean, Ph.D., a post-doctoral research fellow in the lab of Alvin C. Powers, M.D., director of the Vanderbilt Diabetes Research and Training Center. “Vanderbilt’s collaborative environment, especially within the center, was a driving force.”
