PHILADELPHIA — The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has issued a call for nominations for its 2014 Distinguished Lectureship on the Science of Cancer Health Disparities, funded by Susan G. Komen.

The AACR Distinguished Lectureship on the Science of Cancer Health Disparities is awarded to an investigator whose novel work has had or may have a far-reaching impact on the etiology, detection, diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of cancer health disparities. This work may involve any discipline in biomedical research including basic, translational, clinical, or epidemiological studies.

The recipient of this year’s award will receive a $5,000 honorarium and present a 45-minute lecture at the 2014 AACR conference on the Science of Cancer Health Disparities in Racial/Ethnic Minorities and the Medically Underserved. Now in its seventh year, the conference will be held Nov. 9-12, in San Antonio, Texas.

The 2013 award recognized Beti Thompson, Ph.D., associate director for health disparities research, Cancer Prevention Research Program, Public Health Sciences Division at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Wash., for her work developing one of the nation’s pre-eminent programs in cancer health disparities.
