The 2020 Team Science Prize from the American Association for Cancer Research was awarded to The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). The TCGA led an effort to sequence the DNA of all major cancer types. Ralph Hruban, M.D. from Johns Hopkins was included as one of the recipients of the AACR's Team Science Prize as he co-led together with Benjamin Raphael, the TCGA's effort to sequence pancreatic cancer. This is an amazing third time that the pancreatic cancer team at Hopkins has been recognized with the Team Science Award. The Hopkins team won it in 2013 for the first sequencing of all of the genes in pancreatic cancer, in 2017 for new approaches to the early detection of cancer (the "liquid biopsy"), and now again in 2020. These awards highlight the collaborative spirit that characterizes the pancreatic cancer research team at Johns Hopkins.

Congratulations to Dr. Hruban and to the team!
