Matthias Stadtfeld, Assistant Professor in the Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine and Faculty Member of the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Center for Stem Cell Biology, received the Kimmel Scholar Award from the Sidney Kimmel Foundation for Cancer Research. This award provides research grants to young cancer researchers to enhance the understanding of cancer biology and establish new methods for the prevention and treatment of cancer.

The Kimmel Scholar Award is designed to support superb, dedicated young scientists who establish themselves during the critical period between postdoctoral studies, or fellowship, and procurement of an R01 grant. Dr Stadtfeld was chosen for his research entitled, “Role and mechanism of imprinted gene dysregulation in cancer.”

Dr. Stadtfeld is one of only 15 researchers selected for this award this year. He is one of 217 scholars provided with funding through The Foundation since 1995.
