Mikel Garcia-Marcos has been selected as the Karin Grunebaum Cancer Research Fellow for a second year in a row.  The Grunebaum Faculty Research Fellowship is a BUSM annual faculty award that provides $25,000 in total funds to a selected faculty member for a period of one year.  Several Faculty members of our Department, including Bob Varelas and Valentina Perissi, have been awarded this fellowship in the past.  Dr. Garcia-Marcos plans to work on developing a novel therapeutic strategy against cancer metastasis that targets an unconventional mechanism of heterotrimeric G protein activation not mediated by surface receptors (GPCRs).
