Caltech Researcher Granted $500,000 Career Award

As a young medical student, Matthew Porteus recalls his frustration when admitting his first patient with chronic pain caused by sickle-cell anemia. There was little medicine could do to help her in a sustained and meaningful way. The experience influenced his decision to study the basic mechanisms of "gene targeting," one possible way to cure such diseases, which are caused by a single mutation in a cell. Now Porteus will be assisted in his studies thanks to a grant from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
