CEO American Association for Cancer Research
Congradulations to you and the Foundation’s board of trustees in celebrating this Silver Jubilee year!
It is hard to believe that you have reached this milestone but not difficult to recognize the very special contibutions that you and the Foundation have made to cancer prevention, research and education. Twenty-five years ago we may have looked very wistfully at the prospect of preventing cancer but thanks to your passion and dedication we have new hope and promise on the horizon.
Your partnership with and support of AACR have been personally meaningful to me as well as the community of scientists, clinicians and patients we serve. I want to give special recognition to your estabishment and sustained support of the AACR-Prevent Cancer Poundation Award for Excellence in Cancer Prevention Research. Since 2002, it has been our honor to host this Award presentation at our annual Cancer Prevention Research Conference. Given to a scientist residing in any country in the world for his or her seminal contributions to the field, the list of awardees reads like a veritable “who’s who” in cancer prevention. Please accept my sincerest appreciation for foresight in establishing this very special Award.
We look forward to next 25 years of excellence from the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
