PHILADELPHIA - Scientists involved in cancer research, cancer medicine, or cancer-related biomedical science can nominate a colleague or professional associate for the 10th Pezcoller Foundation-AACR International Award for Cancer Research. The award was established in 1997 to annually recognize a scientist:

Who has made a major scientific discovery in basic cancer research or who has made significant contributions to translational cancer research;
Who continues to be active in cancer research and has a record of recent, noteworthy publications; and
Whose ongoing work holds promise for continued substantive contributions to progress in the field of cancer.
While intended to honor an individual, more than one scientist may be co-nominated and selected to share the award if their investigations are closely related in subject matter.

The Award consists of 75,000 and a commemorative plaque. The winner will give an award lecture during the 2008 AACR Annual Meeting, April 12-16 in San Diego, Calif., and will officially receive the award at a May 2008 ceremony in Trento, Italy, where the Pezcoller Foundation is located.
