The AACR Award for Lifetime Achievement in Cancer Research was established and first given in 2004 to honor an individual who has made significant fundamental contributions to cancer research, either through a single scientific discovery or a body of work. These contributions, whether they have been in research, leadership or mentorship, must have had a lasting impact on the cancer field and must have demonstrated a lifetime commitment to progress against cancer.
The 15th Annual Award will be presented at the AACR Annual Meeting 2018 in Chicago, IL, USA (April 14-18, 2018). The recipient must be present to receive the award unless otherwise unable to do so because of health restrictions or other serious conflicts.
The recipient will receive an honorarium, a commemorative award, and support for the winner and a guest to attend the AACR Annual Meeting 2018.
