Hovnanian Foundation Gives U-M $1.65M For Adrenal Cancer Research

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center received a $1.65 million gift from the Hirair and Anna Hovnanian Foundation to fund adrenal cancer research. The gift will further the work of Gary D. Hammer, M.D., Ph.D. and Shruti Jolly, M.D., who treated a member of the Hovnanian family for adrenal cancer. The bulk of the gift, $1.5 million, will go toward establishing a named Adrenal Cancer Repository and Genomic Database. This gift will enable Hammer and his team of researchers to conduct the world’s most comprehensive genomic and genetic analysis of adrenal cancer, which will facilitate translational and clinical research in adrenal cancer. It will help expand and further activate the largest adrenal tumor bank, which is pivotal to uncover the molecular mechanisms of tumor growth and novel insights that will lead to the next generation of adrenal cancer therapies.
