KAMEN--Barton A., MD, PhD. The Board of Directors and staff of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation is deeply saddened by the loss of Barton A. Kamen, MD, PhD. The grant the Foundation awarded to Bart in 1979 when he was just beginning his career was truly one of the best investments we ever made. Bart was a dedicated and compassionate pediatric oncologist, brilliant scientist and superb mentor. In his memory we will rededicate ourselves to finding cures for all cancers.
