Dr. Cherie-Ann Nathan's Grant for Gumclientuploads/_photos/Dr Nathan small-1.jpg

Dr. Cherie-Ann Nathan, Professor & Chair of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery at the School of Medicine in Shreveport is a leading member of Feist-Weiller Cancer Center’s translational cancer care team, and her research involving curcumin received a $40,000 in-house Idea Grant which resulted in a $342,410 NCI grant.  

Now, Dr. Nathan has been awarded an additional $50,000 in grant funding from the LSU System’s Leveraging Innovation for Technology Transfer Program (LIFT2).  The grant will be used to develop a cancer-preventing chewing gum based off of her research on Curcumin, and its efficacy in preventing cancer.
