2020 Sontag Award Recipient

“The generous support of the Sontag Foundation’s Distinguished Scientist Award allows my lab to push towards translating research findings into the clinic to advance the standard of care for brain tumor patients. I am grateful to be part of the Sontag family."

About DSA-Funded Research

Dr. Venteicher is part of a new translational research initiative between the University of Minnesota's Medical School and the Masonic Cancer Center that is exploring the genomics of brain tumors. His laboratory focuses on using new molecular techniques to understand how and why brain tumors develop and resist chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Translational research efforts such as these are of particular importance to identify new treatment options for patients with these diseases.
