Landon Foundation-AACR INNOVATOR Awards
Date:4/11/2008

PHILADELPHIA Reinforcing its commitment to supporting high-quality cancer research, the Kirk A. and Dorothy P. Landon Foundation have again partnered with the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) to create two new funding opportunities, the Landon Foundation-AACR INNOVATOR Award for Cancer Prevention Research and the Landon Foundation-AACR INNOVATOR Award for International Collaboration in Cancer Research. These awards, each offering a two-year $100,000 grant, will support the work of promising cancer researchers focusing on cancer prevention and international collaboration, respectively.

Carlo Maley, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Oncogenesis at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia is the recipient of the first Landon Foundation-AACR INNNOVATOR Award for Cancer Prevention Research. The award recognizes outstanding achievement of an early career scientist pursuing research in cancer prevention and aims to encourage younger investigators to explore the cancer prevention field by providing the necessary support to ensure a robust future in cutting-edge prevention research.

To sustain progress in the rapidly advancing field of cancer prevention research and to develop new ideas and strategies to prevent cancer, younger investigators must be encouraged to pursue careers in this area, said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), AACRs chief executive officer. We are deeply grateful to the Landon Foundation for its support of promising early career investigators and congratulate Dr. Maley on his accomplishments and contributions to the future of cancer prevention research.

Maley and colleagues in his laboratory explore fundamental concepts in neoplastic progression, the processes by which normal tissue becomes cancerous, in order to develop better cancer prevention methods and therapies. They apply evolutionary biology, ecology, computational biology and genetics to the understanding of th
