AACR's Sixth Annual Landon Awards recognize Richard Kolodner, Douglas Lowy and John Schiller

PHILADELPHIA. -- Scientists whose discoveries have led to fundamental advances in the science and treatment of cancer are the recipients of two prestigious international prizes offered by the Kirk A. and Dorothy P. Landon Foundation and the American Association for Cancer Research.

The Kirk A. Landon-AACR Prize for Basic Cancer Research and Dorothy P. Landon-AACR Prize for Translational Cancer Research are the largest such awards offered to cancer researchers from a professional society of their peers. The recipients for each prize receive an unrestricted cash award of $200,000 and present a scientific lecture at the AACR Annual Meeting, held this year from April 14-18 in Los Angeles, California.

This years winner of the Kirk A. Landon-AACR Prize for Basic Cancer Research is Richard D. Kolodner, Ph.D., member of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, and professor of medicine and member of the Moores Cancer Center at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. Dr. Kolodner is recognized for his fundamental discoveries in the field of DNA mismatch repair and its connection to human cancer.

"DNA mismatch repair has proven to be a fundamental concept in cancer genetics and we are proud to honor Richard Kolodner for his work," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), AACRs chief executive officer. "The ingenuity and resourcefulness that led to Dr. Kolodners discoveries strongly represents the spirit with which the Kirk A. Landon-AACR Prize for Cancer Research is given."

This years Dorothy P. Landon-AACR Prize for Translational Cancer Research is awarded to National Cancer Institute researchers Douglas R. Lowy, M.D., and John T. Schiller, Ph.D., for research leading to the development of the human papillomavirus vaccine. Lowy is chief of NCIs Laboratory of Cellular Oncology and head of NCIs Signaling and Oncogenesis Section.
