During this year’s Annual YCC Conclave, The Class of '61 Research Prize was awarded to Katerina Politi, PhD, with introductory remarks by Dr. Roy S. Herbst. Dr. Herbst recognized Dr. Politi's incredible ability to understand both the basic science and clinical aspects of lung cancer, and to bridge the gap between the lab and clinic to succeed in research. He also highlighted her 9 NCI Awards, 70+ publications, and her 2017 Cotran Award from the American Society for Investigative Pathology. Dr. Politi commented, "being part of the lung team at Yale is amazing and I can't think of a better place to have started my independent research career."
