Tomorrow's cancer researchers to attend the 97th Annual Meeting

To provide some enlightenment about cancer research as a career option, the American Association for Cancer Research will host a series of special programs for young scientists at the 97th Annual Meeting: the AACR-Thomas J. Bardos Science Education Awards for Undergraduate Students, the Undergraduate Student Caucus, and the AACR Special Program for High School Students. This years Annual Meeting will take place April 1-5 at the Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C.

The programs are organized by the AACR Science Education Committee and are designed to give students the opportunity to network with each other and leaders in the field of cancer research.

Twenty-one undergraduate students will come to Washington, D.C. as recipients of the AACR-Thomas J. Bardos Science Education Awards. The students include 10 winners from 2006-2007, along with 11 winners from 2005-2006 who also attended last years Annual Meeting in Anaheim. To qualify for the award, candidates must be full-time, third-year undergraduates majoring in science.

Dr. Bardos, a native of Hungary, has been an AACR member for nearly 50 years and, since 1997, has supported the Science Education Awards for college students. Following World War II, he came to the United States, earning a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Notre Dame. He went on to hold a full professorship at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he was a member of the faculty until his retirement in 1995 and still holds emeritus status.

Thanks to Dr. Bardos support and dedication, recipients of the award receive a stipend to attend two consecutive Annual Meetings. His contributions are matched by the AACR.

In addition, all undergraduate student Annual Meeting registrants are invited to participate in the Undergraduate Student Caucus taking place from noon to 4:00 p.m., on Sunday, April 2, 2006, in the Grand Ballroom North in the Renaissance Washington Hotel. This years keynote
