Jan 10th 2011. STW funds Growth Hormone Receptor Screen
Prof. Judith Klumperman, Prof. Ger Strous & Dr. David Egan have been awarded a €750k grant by the STW to carry out a screen at the CSC. The goal of the project is to identify small molecule disruptors of the interaction between the growth hormone receptor and the kinase JAK2. It is anticipated that such compounds could serve as a basis for the development of novel cancer therapeutics. The grant will fund the hiring of a post-doc biologist, a post-doc chemist and a technician.
