The annual event honored SBU cancer researchers Paul M. Bingham, Ph.D., and Zuzana Zachar, Ph.D., of the Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology. Drs. Bingham and Zachar received the Dr. Michael Maffetone Award and were recognized for their development of a new pathway into the cancer cell. Their work led to a new class of anti-cancer agents called Altered Energy Metabolism Directed compounds. Earlier in the year, the compounds were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for evaluation in Phase I/II clinical trials to treat cancer.

Also recognized were Doris R.Weisman, NP, MS, a former SBUMC nurse and administrator known for her many years of service to the breast cancer community, and Gary Cress, owner of James Cress Florist, as the Corporate Champion.

The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, Inc., supports both new and established researchers at Stony Brook University Medical Center investigating the causes, prevention and treatment of breast cancer. This research will include studies of the genetic, molecular, cellular and environmental factors involved in the development and progression of breast cancer; application of the knowledge thus gained to educate medical professionals and increase public awareness for the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer; and studies of the outcomes of breast cancer detection and treatment on the patient and their families.

To date, the Fund has awarded 57 research grants totaling an excess of $3 million to medical research.
