Cancer Research Institute, Inc.
July 2, 2011

During my postdoctoral studies at the section of Immunobiology at Yale Medical School I have been a CRI fellow studying the transcriptional regulation of cytokine genes driving the differentiation processes of T helper cells. During that period, and having peace of mind because CRI was funding my research, we were able to advance our knowledge about gene regulation and show that the three dimensional structure of the genome affects the expression profile of a locus. More importantly others have shown that proximity of gene loci in the 3D nucleus increase the probability for a translocation event usually found in leukemia and tumors.
The funding I have received during my postdoctoral studies was of fundamental importance and helped me get an Assistant Professorship. And again my good angel CRI was there to support my research with an Investigator award. This gave a kickstart to my career and my first steps as an independent investigator. I am really proud being part of this team of people who are dedicated and hard working with the ultimate goal of conquering cancer.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

setting up the fundamental for a new career in molecular immunology and continued to passionately work on that.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to make it even more familiar to the public.
