Funded by the LRF in 2015-2016, Paul A. Spagnuolo, Ph.D. is currently researching how a compound found in avocado pits can kill leukemia stem cells. Dr. Spagnuolo just received a $100,000 from the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research to continue studying the compound as a possible treatment for leukemia.
“This type of science and career-advancing outcome is one of the primary objectives of the LRF’s Hollis Brownstein Research Grants program,” said LRF Executive Director Kevin Radelet.
