Wednesday, May 3, 2017

The Duke Molecular and Physiology Institute is pleased to announce that Jonathan Campbell, PhD, assistant professor of medicine (Endocrinology, Metabolism and Nutrition), and Mark Herman, MD, assistant professor of medicine (Endocrinology, Metabolism and Nutrition), are the 2017 Borden Scholars recipients.

DMPI is the recent recipient of a generous philanthropic gift of $200,000 from Dr. Ernest and Louise Borden. The gift of four one-year Borden Scholar grants will allow selected DMPI faculty to test new, emergent ideas with translational implications for which alternative sources of funding are not yet available. 

Dr. Borden received his medical degree from Duke School of Medicine and has had a long and successful career as a practicing Oncologist with research and clinical trials experience with immunomodulatory therapy in cancer at The Cleveland Clinic. In addition, he has held numerous national academic appointments including American Cancer Society Professor of Clinical Oncology.
