Group wins Deshpande grant for translation efforts

Archive from October 2015

Congratulations to  Dr. Koehler, Francisco Caballero, and Eric Stefan, who were awarded a grant from MIT's Deshpande Center for Technical Innovation for their work on the c-Myc oncoprotein!  The Deshpande Center awards grants which fund proof-of-concept studies, and validation for emerging technologies.  The team has identified small molecules that bind to c-Myc containing complexes, and a smaller subset that modulate c-Myc function in cells, including c-Myc mediated transcription.  The project will explore the therapeutic potential of these small molecule binders.
