George-Lucian Moldovan, PhD, associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at Penn State College of Medicine, was recently awarded a grant extension from the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for his work on how certain inhibitors work on cancerous tumors.

Dr. Moldovan was awarded funding from St. Baldrick’s last year, and its promise after scientific review led to a funding extension for an additional year.

He is a member of Penn State Cancer Institute’s Experimental Therapeutics research program and a member of the steering committee for the College’s MD/PhD Medical Scientist Training Program. He is currently training MD/PhD student Kristen Clements, in her fourth year of graduate study.
