Today, the Der and Cox labs were visited by the Blue Ribbon group of Wilmington, NC.

The Blue Ribbon Run raises money for the Julie M. Brown and Christina M. Gianoplus Fund for Colon Cancer Research from Wilmington, NC. Members of the group included Ana Boudreau, event founder, and Sarah Powell, a survivor of stage IV colon cancer. 

During the tour, lab members talked about organoids, CRISPR, the KRAS protein, and Kirsten Bryant’s research about ERK and autophagy inhibitors.

At the end of the tour, the Blue Ribbon group presented Channing Der and Adrienne Cox with a check for $20,000 to support their research of colorectal cancer.

The next Blue Ribbon run will be in March of 2020.
