Date:3/25/2011

ORLANDO, Fla. The American Association for Cancer Research will recognize leading cancer researchers whose work has significantly contributed to progress in the fight against cancer at the AACR 102nd Annual Meeting 2011. Each recipient will present an educational lecture at the meeting, which will be held April 2-6 at the Orange County Convention Center.

"We are honoring an exceptional group of scientists who have made major, historic contributions to the field," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), chief executive officer of the AACR. "Their efforts in basic cancer research, clinical research, epidemiology, therapeutics and prevention have moved the bar forward and helped an incalculable number of people. These awards honor their contributions, and encourage ongoing research."

The honorees are:

Baxter professor and director of the Baxter Laboratory for Stem Cell Biology in the microbiology and immunology department, at the Stanford Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

"It is a very great honor to deliver the Irving Weinstein Foundation Distinguished Lecture for 2011," said Blau. "The control of cellular differentiation is a key problem in regenerative medicine and cancer biology. I have found that cell fate is far more flexible than we thought an idea that is reflected in numerous therapeutic strategies that are currently being pursued worldwide. One of the things I have learned in science is that pushing the envelope and challenging dogma, while risky, can often be worth it. This award provides welcome validation to me and importantly encouragement to young scientists to pursue high risk, high gain science."

Blau is world renowned for the broad impact of her research on our understanding of main
