The AACR is pleased to sponsor this major international award in recognition of outstanding cancer prevention research. The AACR Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cancer Prevention Research (formerly AACR-Prevent Cancer Foundation Award for Excellence in Cancer Prevention Research) is given to a scientist residing in any country in the world for his or her seminal contributions to the field of cancer prevention. Such investigations must have been conducted in basic, translational, clinical, epidemiological, or behavioral science in cancer prevention research. Further, these studies must have had not only a major impact on the field, but must also have stimulated new directions in this important area.
The recipient of the award will receive a $5,000 honorarium, present a 50-minute lecture at the 13th Annual AACR International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research. Support will be given to the winner and a guest to attend the conference.
