Philip Beachy PhD Developmental Cell Biologist

“We suspect that this pathway of regeneration might be important in cancer development and metastasis in the bladder and other organs, like the prostate,” said developmental cell biologist Philip Beachy PhD. Beachy is the senior author of the research, published online March 9 in Nature. He is the Ernest and Amelia Gallo Professor at the medical school and a member of the Stanford Cancer Center and the Stanford Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine. He is also a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. Kunyoo Shin, PhD, a postdoctoral scholar in Beachy’s laboratory, carried out most of the experimental work and is first author of the paper.

Matt Beachey AmeriCorps MI

Beachey was recruited into a portion of the AmeriCorps program called Bridges to Self-Sufficiency. “It’s about tutoring people, helping kids who are behind and getting them back on track. I thought it’d be a good thing to do after college to give back.” Beachey helps spread awareness of food support programs and lets people know about outreach programs that they would not have been exposed to otherwise. “I like it,” Beachey said. “It’s a rewarding experience, a great way to get into work right out of college that’s only a one-year commitment and gives you opportunities to make connections in the real world.” Click for article in The Gustavian Weekly By Sandy Xiong Staff Writer march 11, 2011
