Dr. Daniel Dempsey Receives Dahod Pilot Grant

The Department of Dermatology congratulates Dr. Daniel Dempsey on receiving a Dahod Pilot Grant.

Daniel Dempsey, PhD, Assistant Professor of Dermatology, will collaborate with William Fairfield Warren Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry Catherine Costello, PhD, and Associate Professor of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine and Ophthalmology Nader Rahimi, PhD, to develop new chemical biology tools to dissect the role of protein modifications in promoting breast cancer to precisely quantitate abnormally modified proteins and define a mechanistic purpose for these changes. Unraveling these mechanisms will identify new vulnerabilities that may be exploited with novel therapeutics to treat patients with breast cancer.

Congratulations Dan on this big honor awarded by Boston University School of Medicine!
