5th Annual Szent-Györgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research awarded
Date:3/16/2010

warded annually to a scientist, nominated by colleagues or peers, who has contributed outstanding, substantial research to the fight against cancer and whose accomplishments have helped improve treatment options for cancer patients. The Prize includes a $25,000 cash award and will be presented to Dr. Vogt on March 16, 2010 at the Hilton New York at an award ceremony featuring a keynote address by John Lechleiter, Ph.D., Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Eli Lilly and Company.

"I am immensely grateful and delighted to be awarded the 2010 Albert Szent-Gyrgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research," said Dr. Vogt. "This award marks a milestone in my scientific career and gives me both encouragement and inspiration. Albert Szent-Gyrgyi's consuming interest during the last two decades of his life was cancer. Being a fiercely independent man, he chose an unusual path to support his research: the establishment of a private foundation. By the power of his personality and his scientific stature, he succeeded in creating the National Foundation for Cancer Research. For almost 40 years, the unique focus of NFCR on research has provided critical support to innovative scientists and has advanced the translation of basic knowledge into successful therapy."

Dr. Peter Vogt's revolutionary research on src has led to the discovery of additional oncogenes, including myc, jun, and PI 3-kinase, that play a key role in human cancer and have become household names in the world of cellular signaling research. His current work on cancer-specific mutations in p110, the catalytic subunit of PI 3-kinase, has demonstrated that these mutations confer oncogenic activity on the protein, making them highly specific cancer targets. Pursuing these targets, Dr. Vogt is now generating small molecule inhibitors that can interfere with their role in cancer causation. Dr. Vogt's iconic career may have begun with oncogene discovery but it has expanded in scope and now in
