  • The Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Foundation provides landmark gift of $100 Million to The Rockefeller University | Newswire
    kind of paradigm changing discoveries that Rockefeller is known for and that will improve human health said Marie Josée Kravis The new building and its laboratories will enable the University s scientists to continue to push the boundaries of biomedical knowledge in important and exciting ways The Marie Josée and Henry R Kravis Research Building will be the foundational element of the University s new Stavros Niarchos Foundation David Rockefeller River Campus The Niarchos Foundation Rockefeller River Campus project was launched in November 2014 by two leadership pledges totaling 150 million 75 million each from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and from David Rockefeller The Rockefeller University is unique in that it attracts the best scientists from around the world and gives them the freedom and support to tackle the biggest questions in science said Henry R Kravis who serves as a vice chair of the University s Board of Trustees Another hallmark of the University is its interdisciplinary and collaborative culture These new laboratories have been designed to enable scientists to work seamlessly with colleagues both within and beyond their fields Since its inception the mission of The Rockefeller University has remained unchanged to conduct science that will benefit humanity said Russell L Carson chair of the University s Board of Trustees The philanthropic vision shown by Marie Josée and Henry Kravis serves as an inspiration to all of us and will help to ensure that the University and its scientists will remain leaders in biomedical discovery today and tomorrow In so many areas of biomedical science we are making great strides in our understanding of health and disease said Dr Tessier Lavigne Investigations in genetics neuroscience immunology and molecular and cell biology are yielding new strategies for the treatment of major diseases Among these are cancer in its many

  • Cancer biologist and physician Sohail Tavazoie is promoted to associate professor | Newswire
    Kettering Cancer Center Within breast cancer cells he identified small RNAs that seemed to regulate metastatic process The RNA molecule is best known for its role converting instructions contained in DNA into protein but small pieces of RNA known as microRNAs play a role in turning specific genes off After arriving at Rockefeller Tavazoie expanded his work to include colon cancer and melanoma His lab first identifies specific microRNAs by looking for changes in microRNA levels in highly metastatic versus poorly metastatic tumor cells They then use these microRNAs as a sort of flashlight that shines light into the complex biology the genes and molecular pathways involved in metastasis Tavazoie says This approach has revealed for example that highly metastatic breast cancer and melanoma cells exploit different microRNAs in order to attract endothelial cells which typically line blood vessels This is an important step in establishing a metastatic colony far from the original tumor I feel fortunate to have been able to recruit such a tremendous group of scientists who have really propelled these studies forward Rockefeller has provided a phenomenal environment for supporting this work and it has been great to collaborate with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center where I am continually inspired by the patients I see says Tavazoie who is also an attending oncologist at Sloan Kettering and a physician at the Rockefeller University Hospital Current work in Tavazoie s lab delves deeper into the details of metastasis promoting pathways exploring for instance how cancer cells benefit by recruiting endothelial cells and how cancer cells change the levels of microRNAs within them He and colleagues are currently working on developing two candidate therapies that take advantage of the new knowledge of the mechanisms behind metastasis In his six years at Rockefeller Sohail has made himself an integral
