PHILADELPHIA — The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) announces a call for nominations for the 2014 AACR Outstanding Investigator Award for Breast Cancer Research, funded by Susan G. Komen.

Such work may involve any discipline across the continuum of biomedical research, including basic, translational, clinical, and epidemiological studies.
The recipient of the award will receive a $10,000 honorarium and present a 25-minute lecture at the 2014 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, which will be held Dec. 9-13.
