Baldwin Receives Continued Support from Waxman Cancer Research Foundation

Albert Baldwin, PhD, Associate Director, Basic Research

Dr. Baldwin is collaborating with a team of three other scientists from the University of California at San Francisco and the University of Pennsylvania.  Their $240,000 grant is titled “HER Family Kinases and Oncogene Addiction in Brain Cancer.”

Dr. Baldwin’s work is focused on a family of proteins called EGFR, with an emphasis on blocking its signaling to inhibit cancer growth. Specifically he is studying the signaling of a protein called NF-kappa B found in cancers driven by EGFR signaling.

The Samuel Waxman Foundation is an international organization dedicated to curing and preventing cancer.  Through its collaborative group of world-class scientists, the Institute Without Walls, investigators share information and tolls to speed the pace of cancer research.
