11 JUNE 2019 / Lung Cancer Research Foundation awards research grants commemorating dear SNF colleague

In memory of our dear colleague Kathryn Louloudis, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) provided support for two new grants through the Lung Cancer Research Foundation (LCRF) for research on disparities in lung cancer. LCRF announced today the awardees of these grants.

Read the full LCRF press release and learn about the awardees’ work.

Kathryn joined the Stavros Niarchos Group in 1985, before the establishment of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, and went on to serve as Chief Operating Officer of the Foundation’s New York Office. The grant to LCRF honors the commitment, strength, and dignity she brought to her work at the Foundation.

Kathryn’s hard work, generosity, kindness, and force of personality left an indelible impression on all of us at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Supporting an initiative that aims to attain lasting improvement in health outcomes, addressing at the same time debilitating inequalities in health services, is a fitting tribute to a remarkable person. We wish Drs. Patel and Risendal the best for progress in their invaluable research,” said SNF Co-President Andreas Dracopoulos.

The Lung Cancer Research Foundation supports research and education that can improve lung cancer outcomes, offering grants on research for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of the disease.
