Two early-career investigators at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Researcher Center have received grants that will fuel their research into metastatic breast cancer. Dr. Erica Goddard, a postdoctoral research fellow in Dr. Cyrus Ghajar’s Laboratory for the Study of Metastatic Microenvironments, won a Breakthrough Fellowship Award from the Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program. She will receive a total of $528,000 over three years.

Dr. Mark Headley, an immunologist who studies the cellular and molecular dynamics behind tumor metastasis, received an Early Career Investigator Award from METAvivor, a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research for stage 4 metastatic breast cancer.
