American Association for Cancer Research provides support for promising cancer scientists

PHILADELPHIA -- The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) offers a number of grants for cancer researchers at various stages in their careers to foster the development of the most promising scientists. The AACR has newly selected 18 investigators to receive these career development awards and research fellowships, which total commitments of $1,275,000. These investigators, scientists who range in level from postdoctoral fellows to assistant professors, were selected through a rigorous and highly competitive process and will be recognized during the AACR Annual Meeting 2007, to be held April 14-18, 2007, in Los Angeles, Calif.

These awards and fellowships are part of the AACRs growing grants program. By the close of 2007, the grants program will have committed more than $5 million to outstanding cancer research projects in the U.S. and other countries around the world.

AACR-GERTRUDE B. ELION CANCER RESEARCH AWARD

The AACR-Gertrude B. Elion Cancer Research Award was established in 1993 in honor of the late Nobel Laureate Dr. Gertrude B. Elion, Scientist Emeritus at Glaxo Wellcome Co. and Past President and Honorary Member of the AACR. This award fosters meritorious basic, translational, or clinical cancer research by a tenure-track scientist at the level of assistant professor by providing a one-year grant of $50,000. It is generously sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline. Recipient: Kent W. Christopherson II, Ph.D., Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Ill. Project: Umbilical Cord Whartons Jelly Mesenchymal Stem Cell Transplant Therapies

CAREER DEVELOPMENT AWARDS

AACR Career Development Awards were first established in 1999 to provide important transitional support for direct research expenses as researchers move from the ranks of early-career scientists to faculty status.
