By
From page A5 | April 25, 2013 |

Frederic A. Troy II, UC Davis professor and chair emeritus of biochemistry and molecular medicine, has received a globally competitive research grant from the Mizutani Foundation for Glycoscience to better understand structural changes associated with metastasis of adult cancer cells and stem cells.

Troy’s study, titled “Functional Analyses of Polysialic Acid DP on Human Cancer and Stem Cells,” specifically focuses on PolySia, a compound found in neural cell adhesion molecules that can regulate the cell-to-cell adhesive processes on human cancer and stem cells. His laboratory will investigate the degree of polymerization of polysialic acid and its role in activating key cancer signaling pathways.

Troy is also a member of the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center and the UC San Diego Glycobiology Training Center. He is past president of the professional Society for Glycobiology and an internationally renowned expert in the field of glycochemistry.

Andrea Stewart of West Sacramento, a UC Davis graduate, is among 12 writers and 12 illustrators who are finalists for the 29th annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement Awards.

Stewart’s love of fantasy and science fiction began when she was in grade school. She grew up in a family where “Star Trek” marathons and questions such as “When are you building me that FTL drive?” were the norm. Weekly trips to the library led her to discover authors she still enjoys reading — Peter S. Beagle, Isaac Asimov and J.R.R. Tolkien.

She and her husband keep a veritable menagerie of animals on their suburban microfarm. When she’s not writing, she works as a contract analyst and paints on the side. The $1,000 finalist’s award represents her first professional sale. Her blog can be found at http://www.andreagstewart.com.

Winning stories and illustrations will appear in the annual anthology “L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers and Illustrators of the Future,” Volume 29 (Galaxy Press, 2013).
