Diana Cittelly, an assistant professor of research in the Pathology Department at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, has received a Future Leaders Advancing Research in Endocrinology (FLARE) Internship Award from the Endocrine Society.
Her research focuses on the hormonal regulation of the brain microenvironment during progression of metastatic cancers.
The FLARE Program, which launched in August 2012, provides training and professional development opportunities for underrepresented minority senior graduate students, postdoctoral and clinical research fellows in hormone health research. The FLARE Awards are supported by the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).
Cittelly and other award winners will be presented with their honors at a joint meeting of the International Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society, ICE/ENDO 2014, June 21-24 in Chicago.
