Two faculty members of the USC Mann School received the 2023 Ming Hsieh Institute Research Award in support of multidisciplinary, collaborative research that accelerates the development of cancer diagnostics and treatments.
Julio Camarero, John A. Biles Professor in Pharmaceutical Sciences, was awarded for his project “Therapeutic Targeting of Hdm2/HdmX E3 Ligase in CRC.”
Yong (Tiger) Zhang, associate professor of pharmacology and pharmaceutical sciences and chemistry, was awarded for the project “Development of Novel Antibody-Drug Conjugates for Metastatic Breast Cancer.”
Bridging basic science, engineering, computing and medicine, the Ming Hsieh Institute Research Award (MHIRA) promotes the integration of engineering, scientific, and medical research that advances novel thinking and the interdisciplinary and collaborative research needed to speed discovery and be translated into human health improvements, according to the USC Office of Research and Innovation.
Established in 2010, the Ming Hsieh Institute for Research and Engineering-Medicine for Cancer aims to develop new treatments and cures for cancer and seek to fuel new approaches to any human health challenge.
