Lugano, Switzerland, 16 August 2012 -- The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) announced today the names of two eminent cancer specialists and one European institution that will be recognized for their contribution to the advancement of medical oncology at the ESMO 2012 Congress. The awards will be presented to Professors Ian Tannock and Jean Yves Blay and to the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) during the Opening Ceremony of the 37th ESMO Congress, 28th September 2nd October, Vienna, Austria.

"More specifically, this award recognizes his tremendous contributions in improving methodology for undertaking clinical trials with emphasis on endpoints of clinical benefit and, at a laboratory level, unmasking aspects of solid tumor biology as well as improving outcomes of treatment with chemotherapy."
