Luiz Henrique Araujo

Brazilian National Cancer Institute

Dr. Araujo was awarded the IASLC Young Investigator Award for 2015-2016.  Dr. Araujo’s career has been highly devoted to becoming a translational researcher in lung cancer.  In 2012, Dr. Araujo had the chance to move to Columbus to work as a postdoctoral researcher with his current mentor, Dr. David P. Carbone.  After three years working with Dr. Carbone in the U.S., he was recently admitted as a Physician Scientist at the Brazilian National Cancer Institute (INCA), where he has the mission to grow a cancer genomics program with focus on lung cancer genomics.  The IASLC award will be of utmost importance in his career development, and will enable the conduction of this project, and help push forward international collaborative efforts like this between the Brazilian NCI (INCA) and Ohio State.
