Temple director earns recognition for cancer work

  1. 1. Temple Director Earns Recognition for Cancer Work By Lindsay Rosenwald
  2. 2. Introduction  Before embarking on a career as a biotechnology investor, Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald earned his M.D. from the Temple University School of Medicine. Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald has since played a key role in the development of several major cancer-fighting drugs.
  3. 3. About the Temple University School of Medicine  The Temple University School of Medicine has a history of involvement in the fight against cancer. In late September 2013, the institution presented a daylong symposium to honor a scientist who spent 18 years at the head of its Fels Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Biology. The researcher, E. Premkumar Reddy, Ph.D., now works in molecular oncology as the Mount Sinai School of Medicine’s director of experimental cancer therapeutics.
  4. 4. Conclusion  The symposium welcomed nine of the honorees’ long-standing colleagues, who spoke about cancer biology and offered up personal stories to enliven their talks. The honoree himself also took the stage in order to thank the attendees and discuss the development of an anti-cancer treatment that he developed while at Temple.
