Congratulations to Dr. Aime Franco on her promotion to Associate Professor with tenure!
More Great News for the Franco Laboratory, as their R01 application “MAPK Pathway modulation in thyroid tumorigenesis” was funded by the NIH (NCI). Congratulations!
Congratulations to Zachary Nickell from the Franco Lab on his acceptance to graduate school. Zach will be attending Florida Atlantic University in the fall to join their Ph.D. program in Evolutionary Biology.
Congratulations to Caitlin Caperton, a M.D./Ph.D. student in the Franco lab on the awarding of her fellowship for the SPaT Program. Her project will focus on the role of Ras in the development of follicular thyroid cancer and novel therapeutic approaches to treat advanced Ras-driven thyroid tumors.
