Your AGA Foundation Gifts Support Andres Roig, MD

Nov. 12, 2010

"It is an honor to have been selected as a recipient of the AGA Research Scholar Award, and I sincerely thank the AGA Foundation and the Linscheer Memorial Fund for supporting my research in colorectal cancer progression. The purpose of the current study is to further understand the biology of how gene mutations drive cancer and determine if some of these genetic changes are critical for tipping the balance between a premalignant and malignant lesion. By biologically identifying important genes critical to malignant behavior and deciphering their frequency of occurrence in tumor specimens, new treatment modalities can be designed aimed at specific pathways. With the support of the AGA Foundation and the Linscheer Fund, I will continue to have the protected time necessary to perform these experiments."
