Cancer Researcher Honoured
Jul 24, 2015

PM Cancer Centre Senior Scientist Dr. Rama Khokha was recently selected as a co-recipient of the Canadian Cancer Society's prestigious Robert L. Noble prize along with University of Toronto researcher Dr. James Rutka.The award recognizes Dr. Khokha's research contributions to our understanding of various aspects of cancer biology, particularly for cancers of the breast, liver, lung and bone. More recently, her research has uncovered the effects of the hormone progesterone on breast cancer stem cells and revealed the role of the TIMP gene family in regulating the tumour microenvironment.
