Cancer prevention expert honored for innovative tobacco research
Date:12/9/2010

HOUSTON - Behavioral scientist and tobacco-cessation expert, Alexander V. Prokhorov, M.D., Ph.D., at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is the recipient of the 2011 American Society of Preventive Oncology (ASPO) Joseph W. Cullen Memorial Award for Excellence in Tobacco Research.

"I'm humbled by such a prestigious award," said Prokhorov, known for his dedication, innovative programs and collaboration with health care professionals, public health advocates and scientists across the nation. "I was particularly impressed that this year's award is being given to someone who's trying to impact younger generations through education and skill building to resist tobacco pressures so we can raise a nonsmoking generation of Americans."

The award created in memory of Joseph W. Cullen, Ph.D., former coordinator of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Smoking Tobacco and Cancer Programs and pioneer of one of the largest tobacco intervention programs in the world, recognizes distinguished leaders in tobacco control, research, prevention and program development. The annual award honors those with programs that broadly affect public health through policy and innovative initiatives.

Colleagues admire Prokhorov's leadership as director of the Tobacco Outreach Education Program (TOEP) at MD Anderson, his novel research focused on tobacco prevention and cessation programs for teens and young adults, in educating health professionals and the public about tobacco hazards.

"Everyone at MD Anderson recognizes that Alex is a visionary and highly accomplished tobacco researcher with a deep passion and enduring commitment to seeing his science translated into the community for public benefit," said Ernest T. Hawk, M.D., vice president and head of Division of Cancer Prevention & Population Sciences at MD Anderson.
