Congratulations Donnele Daley, MD, Inaugural CPOD Emerging Scholar Recipient

The CPOD Emerging Scholar is a competitive award that provides mentoring and research funds for a talented junior investigator working to develop an independent research program. Emerging scholars will perform exploratory studies and/or generate new research models while an individualized mentoring committee enhances their success in obtaining external funding.

 The Center for Cell Plasticity and Organ Design would like to congratulate our Inaugural CPOD Emerging Scholar: Donnele Daley, MD.

Dr. Daley is an Assistant Professor of General Surgery. Her clinical practice focuses on the surgical management of gastrointestinal and peritoneal malignancies. Her research program is centered around understanding the immunopathology of pancreatic adenocarcinoma and how it is modulated by interface with the gut microbiome. Ultimately, Dr. Daley’s goal is to uncover distinct mechanistic pathways connecting the human microbiome, tumor-infiltrating immune cells, and pancreatic cancer cell proliferation, to develop novel targetable strategies for treating this disease.


Please join us in congratulating and welcoming Dr. Donnele Daley to our community!
