Eligibility Requirements

Cancer researchers affiliated with any institution involved in cancer research, cancer medicine, or cancer-related biomedical science anywhere in the world may be nominated. Such institutions include those in academia, industry, or government.

Institutions and/or organizations are not eligible to receive the Award.

Eligible teams may be comprised of independent faculty-level researchers providing complementary interdisciplinary expertise, each of whom have made separate substantive and quantifiable contributions to the research being recognized.

Team members may be working within the same institution or at several institutions. However, if researchers are employed at the same institution, they must possess separate funding and research space.

The team research being recognized should reflect work focused on a specific scientific goal that otherwise would not be realized by any single component of the team.

Teams comprising academic and industry researchers will be accepted.
