There are many ways for MICR members to be active participants in fulfilling the mission and purposes of MICR.
Apply for Scholar Awards
MICR is pleased to present awards to outstanding scientists for recognition of their scientific contributions and to support their participation in AACR Annual Meetings and Special Conferences. Let your colleagues know these awards are available.
Nominate Members for the Wright Lectureship
The AACR-Minorities in Cancer Research-Jane Cooke Wright Lectureship is intended to give recognition to an outstanding scientist who has made meritorious contributions to the field of cancer research and who has, through leadership or by example, furthered the advancement of minority investigators in cancer research.
Participate in MICR Programs During the AACR Annual Meeting
The MICR Council sponsors programs and activities (open to all) that work to increase the number, participation, visibility and recognition of minority scientists in cancer research; address the professional needs of minority scientists; and provide diversity within the AACR's programs. We hope to see you there!
Attend the Science of Cancer Health Disparities
The AACR Conference on the Science of Cancer Health Disparities in Racial/Ethnic Minorities and the Medically Underserved series was inaugurated in 2007 and was a landmark event on the path to understanding and, ultimately, eliminating the disparities in cancer that represent a major public health problem in our country.
