Albert Szent-Gyrgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research announced

(Bethesda, Maryland, July 12, 2005) -- The National Foundation for Cancer Research today announced a new science prize to honor Nobel-laureate, Dr. Albert Szent- Gyrgyi. The Albert Szent- Gyrgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research, a bi-annual $25,000 cash prize, will be awarded to a scientist whose research has made significant advances in the field of cancer research.

In keeping with Dr. Szent-Gyrgyi's belief that one must fundamentally understand cancer in order to cure it, the Albert Szent- Gyrgyi Prize is designed to honor outstanding scientific achievement in the war against cancer while celebrating and recognizing leading researchers who are making extraordinary contributions in the field of cancer research. It is also intended to promote public awareness of the importance of basic science cancer research and encourage increased investment in the resources needed to accelerate progress in cancer research.

Named after Albert Szent-Gyrgyi, M.D., Ph.D.--recipient of the 1937 Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine for his study on Vitamin C and cell respiration--this award embraces and extends his vision of pursuing a cure for cancer by encouraging scientific innovation and fostering collaboration. Dr. Szent-Gyrgyi was a pioneer who, with Franklin C. Salisbury, co-founded the National Foundation for Cancer Research to provide scientists the financial support necessary to pursue novel cancer research ideas. Their effort and vision has now led to directing more than $210 million in support of basic science cancer research and prevention education from the general public.

"The investment in cancer research over the last 30 years has already paid off for millions of cancer survivors worldwide as we continue to proceed in our understanding and abilities to fight cancer. But the toll on human life is still too great," said Dr. Daniel Von Hoff, chairman of the Szent-Gyrgyi Prize Committee. "With an aging population in America, th
