Nicholas Navin, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Genetics, honored with the 2018 Dallas Forth Worth Living Legend Faculty Achievement Award in Basic Research.
Navin was selected for this prestigious award for his exemplary research work in MD Anderson Cancer Center’s mission areas.
Nicholas Navin receives the Jack and Beveraly Randall Prize for Excellence in Cancer Treatment.
The Jack and Beverly Randall Endowment honors Navin's innovative cancer research! He was honored with this award at the President’s Recognition for Faculty Excellence event.
Nicholas Navin among first recipients of the prestigious Sabin Fellows program.
Beginning this year, the Andrew Sabin Family Fellowship Program funded up to eight two-year research fellowships. The program encourages creative, independent thinking and high-risk, high-impact research. Fellowships give deserving early-career researchers at MD Anderson the means to strive toward their collective goal to end cancer. Navin aims to use single cell sequencing technologies to investigate tumor evolution in breast cancer patients and understand how they evolve resistance to chemotherapy. These studies are expected to lead to new diagnostic modalities and therapeutic targets to improve treatment and outcomes for breast cancer patients.
