Research Award from The Mark Foundation
Thank you to The Mark Foundation for Cancer Research for their support of our laboratory. Dr. Hodges has been awarded the Accelerating Scientific Platforms and Innovative Research (ASPIRE) Award from the Mark Foundation. This one-year $230,000 grant was awarded based on a collaboration with Dr. Nathaniel Hathaway of the University of North Carolina Eshelman School of Pharmacy. This award funds the Hodges and Hathaway labs' efforts to develop a new chemical-biological approach to restore activity to transcription factors that depend on SWI/SNF in cancers where SWI/SNF is lost.
