Becoming a Sontag Distinguished Scientist

“The Sontag Foundation’s support of people rather than a specific idea or project is refreshing and much appreciated. I felt empowered to think and do things differently and it motivated me to make a difference in the lives of brain cancer patients as quickly as possible. I try to support my lab members the same way.”
