Defects in proteins that turn genes on and off are involved in the development of many cancers. Researchers are seeking to develop precision chemotherapy drugs to repair these defective proteins as a new way to stop cancer.
One of these researchers is quantitative biologist H. Courtney Hodges, who was recruited in 2017 to Baylor College of Medicine and MD Anderson Center for Cancer Epigenetics, with the help of a First-Time Tenure-Track Award from CPRIT. He was most recently a postdoctoral fellow in pathology and developmental biology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
