Cutting-edge cancer researchers sought for international recognition

The American Association for Cancer Research now is accepting nominations for the fourth annual Kirk A. and Dorothy P. Landon Foundation-AACR Prizes.

These two major international prizes recognize seminal basic and translational cancer research discoveries at the cutting edge of scientific novelty and significance. Eligible candidates are active, recently published scientists who have made extraordinary advances in cancer research, and whose scientific innovation and creativity have contributed to new directions in these fields.

The nomination process and other details about the prizes are located on the AACR Website at http://www.aacr.org. The nomination deadline is Tuesday, August 10, 2004.

The recipient of each prize will receive an unrestricted cash award of $200,000. Both will present lectures during the 96th AACR Annual Meeting, April 16-20, 2005, in Anaheim, Calif., to stimulate and inspire their colleagues to new thinking and fresh approaches in both basic and translational cancer research.

"The Landon-AACR Prizes offer an unprecedented opportunity to recognize the best work of the top cancer research scientists today," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), chief executive officer of the AACR. "We are honored to work with the Landon Foundation in sponsoring these distinguished prizes.

R. Kirk Landon, President of the Kirk A. and Dorothy P. Landon Foundation, said, "It is the goal of the foundation to bring heightened public attention to landmark achievements in the continuing effort to prevent and cure cancer. The dynamic lectures given during the AACR Annual Meeting are the perfect forum for promoting and rewarding outstanding cancer research and for motivating cancer investigators around the world.
