How our recipients are using their award

“My research is focused on the chemoprevention of urothelial and colon cancer and dissecting the plausible mechanism of action in preclinical models. The BioLegend Travel Award will help me attend an international platform like AACR 2022, where I will receive valuable feedback and form collaborations with peers having similar research interests.”

Ashish Tyagi | Texas A&M University

"I am a 6th year DO-PhD student at Michigan State University. Under the guidance of Dr. Karen Liby, I investigate the immunomodulatory mechanisms of action of novel RXR nuclear receptor agonists in mouse models of breast cancer. I will use this award to attend and present a poster at my first in-person AACR event."
