5 from MD Anderson among first inaugurated to AACR Academy
Date:3/28/2013

HOUSTON Five researchers and leaders from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have been named Fellows to a new academy launched by the world's oldest and largest organization dedicated to cancer research, the American Association for Cancer Research.

AACR Chief Executive Officer Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.) said: "Our Board of Directors made the decision to establish the AACR Academy as a mechanism for recognizing scientists whose contributions to the cancer field have had an extraordinary impact. Membership in the Fellows of the AACR Academy will be the most prestigious honor bestowed by the American Association for Cancer Research."

MD Anderson Fellows are:

  • Isaiah J. Fidler, D.V.M., Ph.D., professor and R. E. "Bob" Smith Distinguished Chair in Cell Biology, Department of Cancer Biology. Fidler is an expert on metastasis, the lethal spread of cancer to other organs. He revived and developed the "seed-and-soil" hypothesis of cancer metastasis, directing attention to the importance of the microenvironment (soil) where metastatic cancer cells (seeds) take hold and flourish. The tumor microenvironment is now a major area of cancer research.
  • Waun Ki Hong, M.D., professor and head, Division of Cancer Medicine, and Samsung Distinguished University Chair in Cancer Medicine. Hong's landmark clinical trials demonstrated the effectiveness of organ-sparing cancer treatment, launched the field of chemoprevention, and led the field of personalized cancer therapy. He established the groundbreaking BATTLE clinical trial for lung cancer, an unprecedented effort to match treatment to tumor characteristics.
  • Margaret Kripke, Ph.D., Vivian L. Smith Distinguished Chair and Professor in Immunology Emerita. The founding chair of MD Anderson's Department of Immunology, Kripke made major contributions to understanding of the immune response against cancer and how cancer cells evade destruction. She
