The Nile Albright Research Foundation currently supports research labs at Mass General Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, and Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
The Vincent Center for Reproductive Biology
Rueda Lab: Bo Rueda, Ph.D.
A major effort of the laboratory of Bo Rueda, Ph.D., at Massachusetts General Hospital is the identification and functional characterization of gynecological cancer cells. The Vincent Center for Reproductive Biology comprises basic and clinical scientists whose primary research emphasis includes infertility, aging and cancer pertaining to the ovary.
The Moses Lab
The Vascular Biology Program at Boston Children’s Hospital
under the leadership of Director Marsha A. Moses, Ph.D.
Founded by the late Dr. Judah Folkman, the founder of the field of angiogenesis research. Dr. Folkman based his exceptional career on the observation that tumor growth beyond the microscopic size was dependent on the ingrowth of new blood vessels; angiogenesis.
Steele Laboratories, Massachusetts General Hospital
Rakesh K. Jain, Ph.D.
Our research goals are to reveal how the abnormal tumor microenvironment confers resistance to various cancer treatments, to develop novel strategies to “normalize” the tumor microenvironment to overcome this resistance, and to translate these strategies from bench to bedside through multi-disciplinary clinical trials. This tight integration between bench and bedside is a hallmark of our research.
