Swathi Arur, Ph.D. winner of the MD Anderson Distinguished Research Faculty Mentoring Award! Arur, nominated by faculty, is the recipient of this prestigious award recognizing her dedication to mentoring.
Swathi Arur, Ph.D. selected as a Sabin Fellow! Arur, one of MD Anderson’s brightest young researchers, was selected as a member of the second annual class of Andrew Sabin Family Fellows, a prestigious program established through the generosity of MD Anderson Board of Visitors member Andrew Sabin. The program encourages ingenuity, creativity, independent thinking and high-risk, high-impact research. Arur’s genetics research focuses on the interplay of RAS signaling and small RNA biogenesis enzymes in promoting tumor progression and metastasis.
