UMNEWS – Gift establishes graduate program in cancer biology

The UM/Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center will launch a multidisciplinary graduate program in the study of the biology of cancer. The launch is being made possible by a $1.6 million gift from University of Miami trustee David Fuente and his wife, Sheila.

The Sheila and David Fuente Graduate Program in Cancer Biology will be directed by David Helfman, a distinguished scientist recently recruited from the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
