Judith Gasson's on the way out the door of her research lab when a colleague stops her. "Wait a minute," the lab tech says, handing her a tissue and a mirror. "Hazard of the job," Gasson says with a sigh, dabbing at black smudges under her eyes, courtesy of the microscope she's been staring into for the last half an hour. Such close encounters with lab tools are rare now that Gasson, 44, has assumed her new post as director of UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.

A Sherman Oaks resident and physician at UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has won a $441,500 national award for breast cancer research. Dr. Richard Pietras, 50, said he will use the funds to focus on post-menopausal women, who represent about 75% of all breast cancer diagnoses in North America. Pietras said older women seem unconcerned about breast cancer since often the focus of awareness of the disease is directed at women in their 30s or 40s.

California's stem cell research agency awarded the first of a planned $3 billion in grants Friday, announcing that a little less than $39 million would go to UCLA, UC Irvine, Stanford and several other campuses to help set up programs to train scientists. Although the amount was relatively small, competition among 26 universities and nonprofit institutions was stiff because those selected hope to be at the front of the line for more lucrative public financing to come.

For the Collectors Committee of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, April 9 was a big day. The museum's curators packed the morning with presentations of artworks they hoped to acquire, Patina served up lunch beside the Resnick Pavilion, and the evening featured a gala dinner where members voted their preferences. "The curators' presentations are so compelling that you feel you want to get everything," said actor Julian Sands, attending with his wife, Evgenia Citkowitz. Will Ferrell called his wife, Viveca Paulin-Ferrell, the night's auction chairwoman, "the house curator" but expressed his own interest in modern and contemporary furnishings and art, naming Ed Ruscha, Richard Diebenkorn and Roy Lichtenstein among his favorite artists.
