Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering Pamela Kreeger is among the University of Wisconsin-Madison cancer researchers to earn support as a 2019 Ride Scholar.

The Ride, an annual charity cycling event in Madison, has raised more than $1.2 million for cancer research and treatment at the university since its inception in 2016. Kreeger is one of seven researchers who will use The Ride’s 2019 contribution of $407,389 to push their scholarship forward.

Kreeger, a member of the Carbone Cancer Center at UW-Madison, studies metastasis in high-grade serous ovarian cancer, the most common and aggressive type, in search of identifying potential treatment targets to manage the spread of the disease.
