​2021 Women in Cancer Research (WICR) Scholar Awardees

WICR gratefully acknowledges Science Translational Medicine for its support of the MICR Networking and Resource Center

The AACR-WICR Council is very pleased to administer this important program which provides funds for the participation of early-career, meritorious scientists in the AACR Annual Meeting.  Scholars are selected on the basis of their qualifications, references from mentors, and an estimation of the potential professional benefit to the awardees.

This year we are pleased to announce that the AACR and Science Translational Medicine have provided supported for 2021 WICR Scholars. 

Congratulations to 2021 WICR Scholars.  The names and affiliations of the 2021 WICR Scholar Award recipients are listed below, along with the numbers and titles of their presentations and brief video introductions.
