Helen Piwnica-Worms, PhD, the Gerty T. Cori Professor and head of Cell biology and Physiology, and Jason Weber, PhD, associate professor of medicine and of cell biology and physiology, received one of the awards for their plan to develop new tumor treatment strategies using information gained from sequencing all the DNA of individual cancer patients.
