Jensen Honored by State of Ohio

Published January 2005

The Ohio House of Representatives honored Elwood V. Jensen, PhD, of UC's Department of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy, in December for his research and discoveries into the treatment of breast cancer.

Dr. Jensen attended a special legislative luncheon hosted by women legislators--including Reps. Catherine Barrett, Michelle Schneider, Jean Schmidt, Marilyn Slaby and Patty Clancy.

Rep. Clancy sponsored Dr. Jensen's award and read a resolution in his honor.

She read, "Elwood Jensen's noteworthy record of personal and professional achievement is worthy of emulation, and he has inspired countless individuals to excel in various areas of endeavor. The appreciation and esteem he has gained throughout his life are clearly evident, and his accomplishments are a justifiable source of pride and an excellent reflection not only on him but also on his family and his community."

In September, Dr. Jensen received the Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research for his discovery that one third of all breast cancer tumors contain estrogen receptors--a discovery that later led to the development of hormone therapies for breast cancer treatment.
