Professor Patrick G. Johnston Awarded Society for Translational Oncology's Pinedo Prize
Date:5/30/2013

Durham, NC (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

The Society for Translational Oncology (STO) is pleased to announce that Professor Patrick G. Johnston, M.D., Ph.D, Dean of the School of Medicine, Dentistry & Biomedical Sciences, Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland, has been named recipient of the 2013 Bob Pinedo Cancer Care Prize. The award recognizes Prof. Johnston’s pioneering work in translating discovery science for the benefit of cancer patients. His determination and leadership in establishing a Comprehensive Cancer Care and Research Program in Northern Ireland is testament to his dedication to improving both clinical outcomes and quality of life for cancer patients.

This year's Pinedo Prize of $50,000 will be presented at the STO Fourth Annual meeting, to be hosted by the VU University Medical Center Cancer Center Amsterdam (VUmc CCA) at the ING House in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, October 1, 2013. Prof. Johnston will deliver the keynote lecture at the meeting which will be published by The Oncologist, STO's official journal.

In 2012, the success of his overarching vision was recognized when he was honored to accept a Diamond Jubilee Queen’s Anniversary Prize awarded by Her Majesty, The Queen, for The Queen’s University Belfast-led Comprehensive Cancer Centre and its achievement in reducing cancer mortality rates over the last decade. This significant improvement in cancer outcomes, underpinned by best quality care and innovative research, is a direct result of Prof. Johnston’s philosophy of placing the cancer patient at the center of the cancer care and research agenda.

“I am delighted and humbled to have been awarded The Pinedo Prize,” commented Prof. Johnston. “It is a great honor to have my work and that of my research team recognized by the international cancer research community in this way.”

Prof. Johnston’s research has focused on understanding the cellular signaling pathways
