AACR and Landon Foundation support the next generation of researchers with INNOVATOR Awards
Date:3/25/2011

o support the work of younger cancer researchers lest we risk losing a generation of scientists amidst major funding cutbacks. At the same time we felt the need to pay more attention to prevention. Encouraged by AACR and emeritus scientists we decided it was time to shine the spotlight on bold, emerging mid-career cancer researchers at vital junctures in their work and help springboard their innovation and reward their willingness to collaborate."

The Landon Foundation-AACR partnership continues with these INNOVATOR Awards which honor pioneers in cancer research. Prior to 2011, three prevention, three international collaboration, and one personalized medicine awards were given. Combined with the previous scientific achievement awards, the total contribution of the Landon Foundation-AACR partnership is now close to $4 million.

The INNOVATOR Award for Cancer Prevention Research supports a junior faculty researcher conducting research in any discipline of cancer prevention. The Award for International Collaboration in Cancer Research supports an established international cancer research collaboration involving institutes in multiple countries by supplementing existing funding and providing the means to facilitate travel, training in new techniques, and the dissemination of the scientific knowledge gained from the collaboration. The Award for Research in Personalized Cancer Medicine, now in its second year, provides support for a physician-scientist who conducts meritorious studies that hold promise for near-patient benefit to accelerate progress in the area of personalized cancer medicine. Awardees each receive a two-year grant for $100,000 over the grant term.
