AACR-MICR Minority Scholar Awards in Cancer Research

Scholars are chosen from both minority institutions and the larger bodies of universities,colleges, and research institutes. They are selected on the basis of their qualifications, references from mentors, and an estimation of the potential professional benefit to
the awardees. This program has been supported by a generous grant of the National Cancer Institute’s Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities. The Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRCHD) works to increase the number of underrepresented minorities participating as competitive NCI/NIH-funded cancer
researchers.The name of the Minority Scholar, affiliation, and the poster number is provided below.
