Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) Cancer Center Director David Tuveson and Professor Michael Wigler have been elected as Fellows of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Academy.

Tuveson is being honored for his work on developing preclinical and clinical therapeutic strategies for pancreatic cancer, and for characterizing many of the barriers to successful pancreatic cancer treatment.

Wigler was elected for his cancer genetics research, including first describing a role for the RAS gene family in human cancer and describing how point mutations are capable of activating the oncogenic potential of select genes.

The AACR Academy recognizes and honors distinguished scientists whose major scientific contributions have propelled significant innovation and progress against cancer. Their mission includes leveraging the expertise of the global brain trust of Fellows to prevent and cure all cancers through research, education, communication, and collaboration.
