Shannon Lauberth is one of 15 research scientists and medical doctors from across the United States who have won the prestigious 2014 Kimmel Scholar Award, which provides “gifted, young scientists involved in cancer research” with two-year research grants totaling $200,000 from the Sidney Kimmel Foundation for Cancer Research.

The foundation selected this year’s group of Kimmel Scholars from nearly 140 individuals who demonstrated the greatest promise and innovation in their work, were in the early stages of their research career and had not progressed far enough in their careers to have received major grants from the National Cancer Institute or other funding sources.

Lauberth, an assistant professor in the Division’s Section of Molecular Biology, received her Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from Saint Louis University and performed her postdoctoral training at the Rockefeller University, where she was a recipient of a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award and was an active member of the Anderson Cancer Center.
