Recognizing Stony Brook Medicine’s expertise related to Hodgkin’s lymphoma research, the Jesse and Julie Rasch Foundation has recently awarded Gerardo Mackenzie, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Preventive Medicine, and Stony Brook University Cancer Center, a $179,000 grant investigating prevention of the disease.
“We are excited to be working with Dr. Mackenzie and the team at Stony Brook,” says Jesse Rasch, Chairman of the Rasch Foundation. “We believe that certain natural compounds have tremendous potential to both prevent and help treat blood cancers. Not enough is being done to evaluate these promising compounds, so we are delighted to help drive this research forward.”
