Dr. Roger S. Lo, UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center member and assistant professor of medicine, divisions of dermatology and molecular and medical pharmacology, has received the 33rd Annual American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cancer Research.
The award was presented at the AACR Annual Meeting 2013, held recently in Washington, D.C. Dr. Lo delivered his award lecture, "How Melanoma Escapes From BRAF Inhibition," at the meeting.
“I am extremely honored to be recognized by the AACR and by this particular award, especially given the notable figures in cancer research who have previously received it,” said Lo. “I accept it on behalf of my research team at UCLA and my collaborators and mentors. The support I have received from my family and wife has been absolutely critical. This award also acknowledges the sacrifices made by cancer patients in the search for greater knowledge.”
