Brain Cancer

"There are many young scientists in a similar position that could greatly benefit from the support at the early stages in their career."


Justin Lathia, PH.D.
Cleveland Clinic

Molecular Studies

"The Ohio Cancer Research award was instrumental in getting my laboratory off the ground as a new faculty member."


Denis Guttridge, PH.D.
The Ohio State University

Breast Cancer

"For many in my position such achevements would not be possible without these early investments and I thank you for supporting OCR and enabling the cutting edge scientific projects of Ohio's talented young researchers."

Matthew Summers, PH.D.
Cleveland Clinic,
The Ohio State University

Gene Mutation

"The Ohio Cancer Research grant really sowed the seed of success for me to acquire $1.8 million federal funding since I joined the University of Toledo."


Song-Tao Liu, PH.D.
University of Toledo

Lung Cancer

"Research matters because lung cancer is poorly understood and current therapies are insufficient to save the lives of patients."

Anne Strohecker, PH.D.
The Ohio State University

Funded with the support of Celeste and David Loewendick

Breast Cancer

"The lifetime risk of developing invasive breast cancer is 1 in 8 in women in the United States and 20% of the breast cancer patients die. We are exploring strategies to reduce breast cancer deaths in the clinic."


Huiping Liu, M.D., PH.D.
Case Western Reserve University

Cancer Therapy

"Metastasis, the spread of cancer from the original tumor to other sites in the body, is the main cause of death in most cancer patients. We believe our research will contribute to the identification of new therapeutic targets to reduce cancer cell invasion and metastasis."
