MD/PhD Student Receives Two Grants For Cancer Research

Randall J. Brenneman, Ph.D., an M.D./Ph.D. student pursuing a career in radiation oncology, has received two medical student grants to help support his research into the development of targeted cancer therapies.

Brenneman has been interested in radiation oncology since his undergraduate studies, when he majored in neuroscience at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

“It’s a challenging field, and when you have had family members affected by cancer, you want to join the fight,” he said. “Translational research to find new options for cancer therapy is very appealing to me, especially after seeing patients dying from this disease on the wards as a medical student.” more
