Portrait of a Scientist

A new painting has appeared in a venerable portrait gallery at St. Jude. Molecular oncologist Martine Roussel, PhD, is the first woman to receive this honor.

Roussel has made landmark findings in molecular oncology, cell cycle control, and the translational development of treatment strategies for pediatric medulloblastoma. She played a pioneering role in identifying several important oncogenes and made key contributions to the understanding of receptor signal transduction, cell cycle control and tumor development.
