Promise & Progress - A Spectrum of Achievements

The Harriet and Jerry Dempsey Scholars for Cancer Research Fund

Date: January 15, 2015


A $1 million gift from Harriet and Jerry Dempsey has provided much-needed support to clinician-scientists-in-training in the Department of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences.  The research fund provides promising young investigators and clinicians, like Shereef Elnahal and Andrew Sharabi, the opportunity to work side by side with established experts while pursuing their own areas of interest. “We have been fortunate to attract the best of the best. Our residents are involved in pioneering, high-impact research,” says  Theodore DeWeese, M.D., Director of the department. “The generous gift of Mr. and Mrs. Dempsey to support these fabulously talented young trainees reveals the Dempsey’s passion for excellence and our shared vision for improved care of cancer patients, now and in the future.”
