2022 Minority Scholar in Cancer Research Awardees at the 15th AACR Conference on The Science of Cancer Health Disparities in Racial/Ethnic Minorites and the Medically Underserved.
The AACR-MICR Council is very pleased to administer this important program, which provides funds for the participation of early-career, meritorious minority scientists in the AACR Annual Meeting and special conferences. Scholars are chosen from both minority institutions and the larger bodies of universities, colleges, and research institutes and are selected on the basis of their qualifications, references from mentors, and an estimation of the potential professional benefit to the awardees.
Since its inception in 1985, the Minority Scholar in Cancer Research Award 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.
For 37 years, the AACR has endeavored through this program to reach out to minority predoctoral and postdoctoral students and trainees as future cancer researchers. The program was created in an attempt to address the serious problem of lack of minority participation in cancer research by offering young minority students and trainees the opportunity to attend and participate in the Annual Meetings and Special Conferences of the AACR.
The names and affiliations of the 2022 Minority Scholar Award recipients are listed below.
