Albert Szent-Gyrgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research to Harvard's Harold F. Dvorak, M.D.

Harold F. Dvorak, M.D. stepped down as Chair of Pathology at Beth Israel in July after 26 years to devote his life to basic science cancer research; he is emeritus Mallinckrodt Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Dvorak is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the National Foundation for Cancer Research, and has served as President of the American Society for Investigative Pathology. Educated at Princeton University and Harvard Medical School, he did residency training in Pathology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and postdoctoral research training at the National Institutes of Health. He has served on the Harvard Medical School faculty since 1967 and at Beth Israel since 1979 and has written over 220 original journal reports.

When informed that he was the recipient of the award, Dr. Dvorak said I am surprised and delighted, but also humbled because of my great respect for Dr. Szent-Gyorgyi whom he had known and greatly admired for his independent spirit and outstanding contributions to science." Dvorak also noted that the award meant even more to him because NFCR had provided some of the initial funding for his work on VPF, at a time when no one else believed in the concept and grant support was hard to come by.

The Albert Szent-Gyrgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research was established by the National Foundation for Cancer Research in honor of its co-founder, Dr. Albert Szent-Gyrgyi, recipient of the 1937 Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine for his study on Vitamin C and cell respiration. Dr. Szent-Gyrgyi was a leading advocate for developing resources to provide scientists with the financial support necessary to pursue innovative cancer research. In 1973 he changed the face of cancer research funding by founding the National Foundation for Cancer Research with entrepreneur Franklin C. Salisbury.
