The AACR is proud to offer 14 Global Scholar-in-Training Awards (GSITA) to meritorious early-career scientists from low-and middle-income countries (LMICs) at AACR’s 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting II. The GSITA program builds upon the success of the African Cancer Research Travel Award, which over three years (2016-2018) benefited 15 African scientists from seven countries—Egypt, Ghana, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, and Sudan—and expands the program to eligible investigators from all LMICs. During the program’s first year in 2019, GSITA recipients hailed from nine LMICs. In 2020, the awardee cohort represents eleven LMICs – Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Ethiopia, The Gambia, India, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Turkey.
