Dr. Nguyen received the 2022 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Career Development Award to Further Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Cancer Research, a three-year grant (2022-2025) to support the development of highly talented cancer researchers from underrepresented groups. This award will allow Dr. Nguyen to represent our underrepresented research community in medicine and to promote a diverse and collaborative team with the goal of finding the cure for cancers and alleviating the health disparities in cancer patients. The Dang laboratory uses a multi-disciplinary approach to elucidate genetic mechanisms of cancers to develop novel targeted anti-cancer therapies. In addition, Dr. Nguyen was awarded a five-year R01 grant from National Institutes of Health to unravel the mechanisms and therapeutic opportunity in Myelodysplastic Syndromes.
