Anngela Adams, a Clinical Translational Sciences Ph.D. student in the College of Medicine-Phoenix M.D.-Ph.D. program, received a 2020 Cornerstone Grant from the Histochemical Society.  This $2000 grant supports her research project examining “Association of gamma-interferon-inducible lysosomal thiol reductase (GILT) with clinical outcomes in patients with metastatic melanoma.”

The Histochemical Society offers its nationally competitive Cornerstone Grants to “provide funds to assist graduate medical trainees and graduate students in conducting research involving immunohistochemistry or histochemical techniques and in situ hybridization.”  According to Ms. Adams’ faculty mentor, Dr. Karen Hastings, she has been instrumental in driving the successful completion of this project, which is in addition to the main research project that she will conduct for her Ph.D. dissertation.
