Young scientists awarded for achievements in cancer research

To maintain the flow of keen minds into the research talent pool, the American Association for Cancer Research is holding two special programs for young scientists at this year's Annual Meeting: the AACR-Thomas J. Bardos Science Education Awards for Undergraduate Students, and the AACR Special Program for High School Students. The meeting will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, March 27-31, 2004.

The programs give students an excellent opportunity to gain exposure to the professional world of cancer research and biomedicine. The AACR Science Education Committee organizes both.

Twenty undergraduate students will receive AACR-Thomas J. Bardos Science Education Awards. Dr. Bardos, a native of Hungary, came to the United States after World War II to earn a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Notre Dame. He went on to hold a full professorship at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he was a member of the faculty until his retirement in 1995 and still holds emeritus status. He has been a member of the AACR for 45 years and has supported the Science Education Awards for college students since 1997.

Thanks to Dr. Bardos' support and dedication to the future of cancer research, recipients of the award receive financial support to attend two consecutive Annual Meetings. His contributions are matched by the AACR.

To qualify for the award, candidates must be full-time, third-year undergraduates majoring in science. There are 10 winners for 2003-2004, as well as the 10 winners from 2004-2005 who will be attending their second AACR Annual Meeting. The names and affiliations of the recipients are as listed below, in alphabetical order by state.
