Young scientists awarded for achievements in cancer research

PHILADELPHIA -- To maintain the flow of keen minds into the research talent pool, the American Association for Cancer Research is holding three special programs for young scientists at this year's 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. The meeting will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center, April 16-20, 2005.

The programs, organized by he AACR Science Education Committee, give students an excellent opportunity to gain exposure to the professional world of cancer research and biomedicine.

Nineteen undergraduate students will come to Anaheim as recipients of AACR-Thomas J. Bardos Science Education Awards. There are 10 winners for 2005-2006, as well as nine winners from 2004-2005 who will be attending their second AACR Annual Meeting. To qualify for the award, candidates must be full-time, third-year undergraduates majoring in science.

Dr. Bardos, a native of Hungary, came to the United States after World War II to earn 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. He has been a member of the AACR for nearly 50 years and has supported the Science Education Awards for college students since 1997.

Thanks to Dr. Bardos' support and dedication to the future of cancer research, recipients of the award receive financial support 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 on Sunday, April 17, 2005, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel. This event will provide a forum for undergraduate studen
