NIH Director’s Pioneer Award
Congratulations to Andrew P. Feinberg, Med ’76, who is a 2011 recipient of the National Institutes of Health's Director’s Pioneer Award. The Award supports innovative ideas that have the potential to propel fields forward and speed the translation of research into improved health for the American public.
Feinberg’s research (A General Stochastic Epigenetic Model For Evolution, Development, And Disease) involves non-DNA sequence-related heredity; his early studies of epigenetic alterations of genes in human cancer were controversial. Because it involves the relationship between an individual's genetic background, the environment, aging and diseases such as cancer, epigenetics today is at the epicenter of modern medicine.
