Lynch Receives Bristol-Myers Squibb Award

NEW YORK--Henry T. Lynch, MD, whose pioneering work during the 1960s and '70s helped establish the hereditary basis of certain gastrointestinal, breast, and ovarian cancers, is the recipient of the 19th annual Bristol-Myers Squibb Award for Distinguished Achievement in Cancer Research. Thanks in large part to Dr. Lynch, the specific genetic mutations responsible for a number of familial cancers have been identified.

Dr. Lynch is professor of medicine and chairman of preventive medicine and public health, Creighton University School of Medicine, Omaha.
