PHILADELPHIA American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Chief Executive Officer Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.) is the 2008 recipient of the George Washington University Cancer Institutes Distinguished Public Service Award, presented to an individual who has provided outstanding public leadership in cancer healthcare and public policy. Foti was honored during the Fifth Annual GW Cancer Institute Gala on May 3, 2008 at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.

I am deeply honored to receive this award from the George Washington University Cancer Institute, Foti said. The cancer institutes mission, which encompasses research, collaboration, education and community outreach is vitally important to progress against this terrible disease.

Dr. Fotis contributions to cancer research are extraordinary. Through a distinguished career filled with contributions to scientific publishing, educational programs, innovative research grants and advocacy activities, her leadership has fostered significant progress in cancer research, said Steven Patierno, Ph.D., executive director of the GW Cancer Institute.

Foti has dedicated her career to cancer research and the AACR. Progressing through several key editorial and management roles at the AACR, she was appointed to her current position of CEO in 1982 by the AACRs board of directors. In addition, she serves as secretary-treasurer and CEO of the AACR Foundation for the Prevention and Cure of Cancer and managing editor of Cancer Research. During Fotis tenure, AACR membership has grown to nearly 27,000 cancer scientists residing in more than 70 countries.

In addition to serving as managing editor of Cancer Research, the most highly cited cancer journal in the world, Foti has launched five additional high-quality AACR journals: Clinical Cancer Research; Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention; Molecular Cancer Therapeutics;Molecular Cancer Research and Cancer Prevention Res
