The LUDWIG INSTITUTE FOR CANCER RESEARCH is opening a Princeton University branch that will focus on cancer metabolism, the University announced in April. Joshua Rabinowitz, a professor of chemistry and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics who specializes in cancer and metabolism, is director of the branch, and Eileen White of Rutgers University serves as associate director. Yibin Kang, Princeton’s Warner-Lambert/Parke-Davis Professor of Molecular Biology, is a principal investigator and founding member. 

Rabinowitz said the branch “offers us the chance to capitalize on multiple areas where Princeton is a world leader and has world-leading technologies that haven’t yet been applied to cancer.”
