Congratulations to my colleague and friend, Joe DeSimone.
A couple of days ago the Raleigh News and Observer named him their Tar Heel of the Year for 2008.
Joe’s innovative work, for which he has gained international recognition, is being put to work in ways that promise to benefit tens of thousands of people with cancer.
We are grateful to the General Assembly and the people of North Carolina for the University Cancer Research Fund. Money from the UCRF is supporting Joe’s amazing work.
