Megan Insco, MD, PhD, Damon Runyon Fellow at Boston Children's Hospital
When I was in 7th grade, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was devastated and directionless. When she passed away two years later, my broad set of interests resolved around a singular focus. I would channel my passion for discovery and my need to see my work manifest productively in the world, into a career discovering and delivering life-enhancing therapies for cancer patients.
