Piero Dalerba, MD, Assistant Professor of Pathology and Cell Biology, has been named one of the winners of the 2017 Schaefer Research Scholars Program Awards.

  • a personal cash prize of $50,000 to be used at each researcher’s discretion for travel, living or additional research expenses and,
  • up to $220,000 in research support (inclusive of overhead and administrative costs) to be paid to each Research Scholars home institution

As a winner, Dr. Dalerba will also attend the annual Schaefer Symposium at Columbia University and will be recognized in a ceremony at CUMC at the end of the academic year. 

Congratulations again, Dr. Dalerba!
