Fifty-five scientists from the Belfer Institute for Applied Cancer Science at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are moving to a new cancer institute at MD Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas, Carrie Feibel of Houston Public Radio, reports this morning in partnership with Kaiser Health News. The move comes after Dr. Ron DePinho, who was the founding director of the Belfer Institute, was chosen as president of MD Anderson in May. Feibel reports that the recruits include 28 researchers, along with 27 post-doctoral and PhD students. The researchers will work under Dr. Lynda Chin, DePinho’s wife who also came from Dana-Farber and who will be the scientific director of the new Institute for Applied Cancer Science.
