The Universities Our Fellows Attend

Boston University School of Medicine:  In 2002 the Foundation funded the Karin Grunebaum Professorship in Cancer Research, which is a permanently endowed chair which will provide salary and research support to a distinguished scientist working in cancer research.  This Professorship is unique, in that it is not limited to any specific department and may include any scientist whose principal focus is in the area of cancer research.  Douglas Faller, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the Boston University School of Medicine Cancer Center is the current holder of this chair.

In addition, a faculty member who is in the first 5 years of faculty appointment in laboratory or translational cancer research is also supported annually as a Karin Grunebaum Faculty Research Fellow, both with grants for salary and research as well as travel stipends to attend symposia concerning their field of study.

Harvard University Medical School:  A faculty member who is in the first 5 years of faculty appointment in laboratory or translational cancer research is supported annually as a Karin Grunebaum Faculty Research Fellow, with grants for salary and research as well as travel stipends to attend symposia concerning their field of study.

All currently selected Fellows and the Karin Grunebaum Professor in Cancer Research meet annually with the Trustees (and with each other) to report on their research activities.

Additionally, the Foundation sponsors social occasions for past and present Fellows to meet informally so that they can learn from interaction with their peers and predecessors.
