Scientists making advances in cancer to receive international awards

as related to drug discovery that has implications for the improved care of cancer patients. The prize was established to honor Dr. Bruce F. Cain, whose scientific interests involved the design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of potential anti-tumor drugs. Adams will present his lecture, "The Proteasome and Cancer: The Discovery and Development of VELCADE," at 9:00 a.m., April 5, in Ballroom A-B of the Washington Convention Center.

Nicholas Edward Day, Ph.D., Professor of Epidemiology, University of Cambridge, UK, will be honored with the 15th AACR-American Cancer Society Award for Research Excellence in Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention. With this award, Day will be recognized for developing and widely applying many of the statistical methods that support modern cancer epidemiology. The award is intended to distinguish outstanding achievements in the fields of epidemiology, biomarkers, and prevention. Day will present his lecture on "Cancer Prevention: Past Perspectives and Future Directions," at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4, in Hall D of the Washington Convention Center.

Merrill J. Egorin., M.D., Professor of Medicine and Pharmacology, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, Pittsburgh, Pa., will be honored in recognition of his outstanding achievements in clinical and preclinical cancer pharmacology. Dr. Egorin will be the recipient of the 11th AACR-Joseph H. Burchenal Clinical Research Award, which recognizes outstanding achievements in clinical cancer research. The award's namesake was an honorary member and past president of AACR, as well as a major figure in clinical cancer research. Dr. Egorin's lecture, "Keep on Trucking: Antineoplastic Clinical Pharmacology--Where We Have Been, and Where We Need to Go," is to be presented at 8:00 a.m., Wednesday, April 5, in Ballroom A-B of the Washington Convention Center.
