Pershing Square Sohn Cancer Research Alliance

  1. The Pershing Square Sohn Cancer Research Alliance was formed in 2013 through a $25 million commitment by Bill and Karen Ackman and The Pershing Square Foundation, which partnered with The Sohn Conference Foundation. The Alliance is dedicated to playing a catalytic role in accelerating cures for cancer by supporting innovative cancer research and by facilitating collaborations between academia and industry. Annually, the Alliance awards The Pershing Square Sohn Prize to young New York based scientists who are engaged in cutting-edge cancer research.

  3. Benjamin Martin, PhD, Stony Brook University School of Medicine: Dr. Martin’s research is focused on developing a better understanding of the metastasis from primary tumors to new sites in the body. Working with zebrafish as a model, he will use state of the art microscopy and genetic analysis to achieve an unprecedented level of understanding about how circulating tumor cells are able to exit blood vessels and invade new sites in the body.

  4. Alberto Ciccia, PhD, Columbia University Medical Center: Dr. Ciccia’s research is in pursuit of new therapies against BRCA1-mutant tumors. His work will examine whether inflammatory signals induced by the DNA replication factor SMARCAL1 may contribute to the development of BRCA1-mutant breast tumors.

  5. Kivanc Birsoy, PhD, The Rockefeller University: Dr. Birsoy’s research aims to identify the nutritional requirements of cancer cells to metastasize to different organs. His lab recently identified the amino acid aspartate as one such potential limitation for tumor growth. Finding nutrient limitations of cancer cells will ultimately lead to the development of metabolism based anti-cancer therapies.
