PHILADELPHIA The Board of Directors of the American Association for Cancer Research is pleased to honor Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.) with the first annual AACR Award for Leadership and Extraordinary Achievements in Cancer Research. Dr. Foti is Chief Executive Officer of the AACR; Secretary-Treasurer and Chief Executive Officer of the AACR Foundation for the Prevention and Cure of Cancer; and Managing Editor of Cancer Research, the most highly cited cancer research journal in the world.

Recognized for her extraordinary leadership of the AACR and her sustained dedication to the conquest of cancer through research, scholarly publications, communication, science education and training, and public education, the Board of Directors chose to perpetuate her leadership qualities by establishing an award in Dr. Foti's honor. Subsequent awards in her name will honor exemplary leaders in the field of cancer research.

"Dr. Foti's dedication and incredible passion for conquering cancer are well known and held in high esteem in the Association as well as globally," said Peter A. Jones, Ph.D., D.Sc., AACR past president. "Although she does not seek the limelight, preferring to let others receive recognition, the Board of Directors of the AACR is pleased to honor Dr. Foti for her leadership and achievements in cancer research."

Dr. Foti joined the AACR in 1965 as Editorial Assistant for Cancer Research, under the editorship of her first mentor, Michael B.
