Jean-Benoît Lalanne, PhD, a postdoc in the Department of Genome Sciences, received a four-year fellowship award from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation. Lalanne is one of 17 remarkable postdoctoral scientists recognized in the newest class of fellows.

Lalanne investigates the biophysical determinants of gene expression. His goal is to formulate predictive models of which mutations in the noncoding genome can perturb the gene expression program and ultimately lead to cancer development.
