AACR Undergraduate Scholar Awardees 2021-2022

The AACR is pleased to announce the recipients of 2021 AACR-Undergraduate Scholar Awards. Awards have been given since 1997 and are intended to inspire young science students at the undergraduate level to enter the field of cancer research. The AACR is committed to promoting the education and training of the next generation of dedicated scientists and to facilitating and nurturing their careers in cancer research or cancer-related biomedical science. In 2021, the AACR and Dr. Kathleen W. Scotto have generously supported these awards.

Congratulations to these talented young scholars.  The names and affiliations of the 2021 Awardees are listed below, along with the numbers and titles of their poster presentations, where appropriate, and brief video introductions.
