We are extremely pleased to announce the addition of the "MICR Member Spotlight!" page to the MICR webpages. This webpage exists to focus attention on the recent awards, promotions, degree completions, and appointments of AACR-Minorities in Cancer Research members.
The mission of MICR is to prevent and cure cancer while meeting the professional needs and advancing the careers of minority scientists. Sending your accolades to us for the "MICR Member Spotlight" will increase the visibility and recognition of the outstanding contributions minority scientists are regularly making to the field of cancer research.
