Dr. Marina Holz, Doris and Dr. Ira Kukin Chair in Biology, received the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Bayer Innovation and Discovery Grant to study a form of triple-negative breast cancer.

The one year AACR grant funds researchers providing new treatment options for cancers that are under-researched, translating innovation into drugs and creating bridges between the academic and pharmaceutical industries. Applications were peer-reviewed and awarded to Holz by AACR past President Dr. José Baselga and Senior Vice President and Head of Therapeutic Research Groups of Bayer Dr. Karl Ziegelbauer at the annual AACR Grants Reception and Dinner.
