Robert T. Hanlon, PhD, Exon 20 Group Co-Founder and Chair, presented a check for the $25,000 proceeds from the Swing Fore Life Golf Invitational to Heidi Greulich, PhD, Senior Group Leader in the Cancer Program at The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Together with Dr. Matthew Meyerson, Dr. Greulich is leading a group at the Broad Institute studying therapeutic approaches to treating cancers with EGFR exon 20 insertions and HER2 exon 20 insertions pursuant to an Exon 20 Group grant. With Heidi is Bethany Kaplan, a Senior Research Associate in her group.
"We were delighted to have Ms. Kaplan speak at the Golf Invitational to a very appreciative crowd," said Hanlon.
The second annual Swing Fore Life Invitational in Fayetteville, New York, chaired by Michael Beacham, a member of the Exon 20 Group Board, was in memory of the Exon 20 Group's inspiring Founder and Chair, Kevin M. Hanlon whose loss is felt every day at the Exon 20 Group. All proceeds from the event benefited the Exon 20 Group's grant to the Broad Institute.
