Siteman Cancer Center Honors 2018 Rock Docs

Each year Siteman Cancer Center sponsors CUREiosity, an event to celebrate the “Rock Docs” making a difference at the Alvin J Siteman Cancer Center as well as the cutting edge “Rock Star Research” being conducted at the institution. This year more than 300 guests were in attendance, and one of our very own NF Center researchers, Dr. Angela Hirbe was named a 2018 Rock Doc. Dr. Hirbe is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Oncology, and her research focuses on identification of biomarkers and therapeutic targets for malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNSTs), aggressive soft tissue sarcomas that occur at an increased frequency in patients with Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1). Congratulations to Dr. Hirbe and all of the 2018 Rock Docs!
