AACR supports faculty at minority-serving institutions

PHILADELPHIA -- Throughout the year, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) selects faculty members in minority-serving institutions who have shown excellence and dedication in the field of cancer research. They come from institutions which are historically Black, predominantly Hispanic, and Tribal Colleges and Universities.

The AACR Minority-Serving Institution Faculty Scholar Awards in Cancer Research is supported by a grant from the National Cancer Institute's Comprehensive Minority Biomedical Program. The total amount awarded for AACR 2004 Fall Special Conferences exceeds $16,000.

Awardees are chosen by an Advisory Committee of the AACR. Candidates must have completed doctoral studies or clinical fellowships relevant to cancer research and hold full-time faculty positions at the level of assistant professor or above at an institution designated as minority-serving. Candidates also must be engaged in meritorious basic, clinical, or translational cancer research.

A total of nine faculty at Minority-Serving Institutions have received awards from AACR to attend one of several 2004 AACR Fall Special Conferences which included: Advances in Proteomics in Cancer Research, October 6-10, 2004, Key Biscayne, Fla.; Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, October 16-20, 2004, Seattle, Wash.; Basic, Translational, and Clinical Advances in Prostate Cancer, November 17-21, 2004, Bonita Springs, Fla.; Cell Cycle and Cancer: Pathways and Therapies, December 1-5, 2004, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Winners of this year's AACR Fall Special Conferences are listed below.
