Hai Yan, MD, assistant professor in the Department of Pathology and member of the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center, has won a two year, $80,000 per year award from Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a foundation that raises money to support research of new treatments for pediatric cancer. Yan is researching novel therapeutic strategies for high-risk medulloblastomas, the most common cancerous brain tumor in children. The foundation was established in 2000 by a four-year old cancer patient who raised money for cancer research with his lemonade stand. Six years later, the organization has raised more than $5 million.
