Academic Honors

Collaborations Against Cancer—Stand Up To Cancer selected Matthew Levy, Ph.D., as recipient of one of its “Dream Team” awards. Dr. Levy will receive a two-year grant of $250,000, to be shared with Cassian Yee, M.D., at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The award program, established in 2014 by Phillip A. Sharp, Ph.D., aims to promote collaborations among “Dream Teams” of researchers who have not previously worked together. Drs. Levy and Yee will team up to study components of immune response, specifically the body’s recognition of cancer-associated proteins. They intend to use aptamers –nucleic acid-based molecules that can be designed to bind to a variety of cellular components – in order to better detect and interact with complexes involved in this process, which could aid in diagnosis and treatment of various cancers. Dr. Levy is associate professor of biochemistry.
