CLEVELAND CLINIC AWARDED CANCER RESEARCH GRANTS

 CLEVELAND CLINIC AWARDED CANCER RESEARCH GRANTS
 CLEVELAND, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Two Cleveland Clinic cancer


researchers have been awarded grants totalling more than $340,000 by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
 The National Institutes of Health provided a grant of $255,762 to support the work of Dennis Stacy, Ph.D. Stacy, a molecular biologist, is studying how genes regulate cancer cell growth.
 The NIH also awarded $88,795 to Cleveland Clinic researcher Philip Howe, Ph.D. Howe's work focuses on the regulation of cell growth by a protein called Transforming Growth Factor-Beta and how the loss of cell regulations by this protein leads to cancer.
 The activities that transform a normal cell into a cancerous one continue to baffle scientists. These awards will help researchers at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation sustain their work toward unlocking this medical mystery.
 The Cleveland Clinic Foundation is a multispecialty academic medical center providing state-of-the-art care while advancing the frontiers of medicine. Since its founding in 1921, the integration of clinical and hospital care with research and education in a private, non-profit group practice has distinguished the Cleveland Clinic in American medicine. Today at the Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Clinic Florida, nearly 600 full-time salaried physicians represent more than 100 medical specialties and subspecialties. Every year the Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Clinic Florida provide for more than 780,000 outpatient visits and 32,000 hospital admissions from throughout the United States and more than 80 countries.
