Academic Honors

Dual Honors—Evripidis Gavathiotis, Ph.D., was recognized for his work in cell signaling and cancer proliferation by two organizations: the Melanoma Research Alliance and the Irma T. Hirschl Foundation. The alliance awarded Dr. Gavathiotis a two-year, $200,000 pilot award that supports promising early research, which will aid his project targeting the protein BRAF. The protein is known to have a role in promoting cancer cell growth, and Dr. Gavathiotis will use information about the protein’s structure along with a new compound that inhibits BRAF in order to develop new drugs that can overcome treatment resistance. Through the Irma T. Hirschl Career Scientist Award, which recognizes talented biomedical researchers selected from six New York City institutions, he will receive $175,000 over five years. Dr. Gavathiotis is associate professor of biochemistry and of medicine.
