ORLANDO, Fla. The American Association for Cancer Research will recognize leaders in the minority cancer community with the Minority-Serving Institution Faculty Scholars in Cancer Research Awards. The 36 recipients will be honored at the AACR 102nd Annual Meeting 2011, held April 2-6.
The Minority-Serving Institution Faculty Scholars in Cancer Research Awards are given to scientists who are working at the level of assistant professor or above at a minority-serving institution and who are engaged in meritorious basic, clinical, translational or epidemiological cancer research. Minority-serving institutions include historically black colleges and universities, Hispanic-serving institutions, tribal colleges and universities and other post-secondary institutions as defined by the U.S. Department of Education.
The award is intended to increase the scientific knowledge base of faculty members at minority-serving institutions, to encourage them in their research and to assist in inspiring their students to pursue careers in cancer research. It is supported by a grant from the National Cancer Institute's Cancer to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities.
The recipients of the 2011 Minority-Serving Institution Faculty Scholars in Cancer Research Awards include:
