Hee Won Yang Awarded 2023 V Scholar Grant

Hee Won Yang, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pathology and Cell Biology, will receive funding from the V Foundation for Cancer Research for his research project titled: “Deciphering mechanisms of RAS inhibitor resistance in NRAS-mutant melanoma”. This research is centered around overcoming therapeutic hurdles for patients with NRAS-mutant melanoma by investigating potential resistance to novel pan-RAS inhibitors, which specifically target NRAS mutations. The goal of this research is to uncover the factors causing resistance, paving the way for the development of more effective treatments for these patients.

Congratulations to Dr. Yang!
