ORLANDO, Fla. The American Association for Cancer Research and the Kirk A. and Dorothy P. Landon Foundation will present three INNOVATOR Awards at the AACR 102nd Annual Meeting 2011, held April 2-6.

The Fourth Annual Landon Foundation-AACR INNOVATOR Award for Cancer Prevention Research will be presented to Megan J.
