Steven Tur receives ASH Award

Steven Tur, who works in SCRMC member Marjorie Brand’s lab, has received the prestigious Graduate Hematology Award from the American Society of Hematology (ASH). With only nine recipients, Tur will receive funding for his research focusing on T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL), a severe hematological malignancy characterized by the aberrant expression of oncogenic transcription factors, transforming T-cell progenitors into malignant cells.
