Leading researchers honored for progress in cancer prevention, detection and treatment

PHILADELPHIA World-class cancer researchers whose science has significantly contributed to progress in the fight against cancer will be recognized April 14-18, 2007, by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) at its 2007 Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, Calif.

A series of awards given annually by the AACR, the world's oldest and largest professional organization representing cancer scientists from the United States and nearly 70 other countries, honor outstanding accomplishments in basic research, clinical care, therapeutics and prevention. Each recipient presents an educational lecture at the AACR Annual Meeting.

"During this, our Centennial year, we are privileged to recognize some of the many dedicated scientists, nominated by their peers, whose extraordinary work has helped to shape the direction of cancer research," said AACR Chief Executive Officer Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.).

"As we commemorate 100 years of progress in cancer research, we look to these individuals as research leaders in our shared mission to conquer cancer," Foti added.

Peers and colleagues nominate award candidates. Selection committees for each award, comprised of leaders in all areas of cancer research, choose the honorees.

This year's winners are a diverse group of cancer researchers from around the country who exemplify the theme of the 2007 Annual Meeting, "A Century of Leadership in Science, A Future of Cancer Prevention and Cures." The honorees are:

  • Janet S. Butel, Ph.D., The Joseph L. Melnick Professor of Virology; Program Leader, Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center; Director, Baylor-UTHouston Center for AIDS Research; and Distinguished Service Professor and Chair, Department of Molecular Virology and Microbiology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas, will be honored with the 10th Annual AACR-Women in Cancer Research-Charlotte Friend Memorial Lectureship, for her fundamental contribut
