ROCKVILLE, MD – The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) has named Andrew Adey, PhD, as the recipient of the 2018 Early-Career Award. Dr. Adey is an Assistant Professor for the Department of Molecular & Medical Genetics within the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).
This award recognizes the contributions of genetics and genomics scientists in the first ten years of their careers as independent investigators. ASHG will present the award, which will include a plaque and $10,000 prize, on Friday, October 19, during the organization’s 68th Annual Meeting in San Diego, California.
“In a relatively short time, Dr. Adey’s research has made an impressive impact on the scientific understanding of cancer development, progression, and response to treatment,” said David L. Nelson, PhD, President of ASHG. “We expect his contributions to the genetics community to continue to grow and advance the field.”
Dr. Adey’s research focuses on the next technical frontier of genomic and epigenetic profiling at a massive scale. Immediately after completing his PhD in Molecular & Cellular Biology, Dr. Adey joined the faculty at OHSU to
