David HungerfordDavid HungerfordThe David A Hungerford Fund was established to support basic chromosome (genetic) research at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia PA.

In 1961 David Hungerford discovered the Philadelphia Chromosome at the Fox Chase Cancer Center (then the Institute for Cancer Research). The Philadelphia Chromosome was the first genetic abnormality consistently associated with a type of cancer, chronic myleogenous leukemia (CML). CML was universally fatal in 1961, but in the intervening years and after discoveries by other investigators, the pieces of the puzzle fell into place and now 95% of CML patients can be successfully treated with one drug (Gleevec).
