AACR expands cancer research knowledge with scholarships for minority and women scientists

Three Scholar Awards programs, sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research, will provide scientists traditionally underrepresented in cancer research with financial support to participate in the premier international meeting in the field. The AACR Annual Meeting draws nearly 16,000 clinical oncologists, basic scientists, epidemiologists and translational researchers from around the world to discuss the latest findings and most significant information in laboratory, translational and clinical cancer research. More than 6,000 scientific abstracts will be presented this year.

"The AACR maintains a strong commitment to enhancing the educational and training opportunities available to the next generation of cancer researchers," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), AACR's chief executive officer.

"Our primary mission is to promote the exchange of knowledge and new ideas among the scientists on the front lines in the quest for the prevention and cure of cancer," Foti added. "These awards seek to improve the inclusiveness of cancer research, so that no pool of potential talent goes untapped."

77 early-career scientists received AACR Minority Scholar Awards in Cancer Research to participate in the 2006 AACR Annual Meeting. These awardees were selected on the basis of their scientific qualifications, references from mentors, and an estimation of the potential professional benefit to the awardees. During the meeting they will attend scientific sessions, participate in networking events, and 69 awardees will present meritorious scientific papers.

Criteria for candidacy for this award program include the stipulation that the applicant fit the National Cancer Institute definition of groups traditionally underrepresented in cancer and biomedical research: African Americans, Alaskan Natives, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Native Pacific Islanders. Additionally, eligible candidates must be full-time graduate or medical student
