Dr. Wan-Yee Teo and Dr. Keita Terashima, research fellows in the Cancer Genomics Program (supervisor: Dr. Ching C. Lau) at Texas Children’s Cancer Center both won the prestigious Hoshino Awards during the 3rd World Federation of Neuro-Oncology held in May this year.
The Hoshino Award is given to young investigators who submitted and presented the best papers that were judged by an international panel of experts in brain tumor research through a rigorous two-step process.
Wan-Yee Teo, M.D., a research fellow presented “Do medulloblastoma in adolescents have a distinct molecular signature and different tumor biology?” Keita Terashima, M.D., a third year clinical fellow of pediatric hematology and oncology presented “Genomic profiling of intracranial germ cell tumors with single nucleotide polymorphism array.”
The World Federation of Neuro-Oncology is a scientific meeting that meets once every four years and is organized by three international societies for neuro-oncology, the Society for Neuro-Oncology (SNO) in U.S., the European Association of Neurooncology (EANO), and the Asian Society for Neuro-Oncology (ASNO). This year, the meeting was held in Yokohama, Japan.
