amp; Marie Curie University in Paris and the University of Copenhagen.

Susan Band Horwitz, Ph.D., will be awarded the Society's Medal of Honor for Clinical Research. Dr. Horwitz is an internationally recognized molecular pharmacologist who has made major contributions to our understanding of antitumor drugs. Her pioneering research in identifying the mechanism of action of Taxol(R), as an inhibitor of cell division due to its interaction with microtubules, led to clinical trials of this drug in the mid-1980s. Taxol(R) is now involved in the first line of treatment in many cancers, including ovarian, breast and non-small cell lung cancer. The drug has been administered to more than one million patients. Dr. Horwitz is currently Distinguished Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in New York where she serves as the Falkenstein Professor of Cancer Research and Co-Chair of the Department of Molecular Pharmacology.

Throughout her long career, Dr. Horwitz has authored more than 250 publications that have enhanced our knowledge of antitumor drugs, including mechanisms of drug resistance. Among the numerous awards Dr. Horwitz has received are the Cain Memorial Award from the American Association for Cancer Research; the ASPET Award for Experimental Therapeutics; the Chester Stock Award from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; and the Warren Alpert Foundation Award from Harvard Medical School. Dr. Horwitz has been elected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, to the National Academy of Sciences and to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies. She served as president of the American Association for Cancer Research in 2002 and 2003.
