The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Science Translational Medicine are now accepting applications for the 2018 AAAS Martin and Rose Wachtel Cancer Research Award. This annual award honors early-career investigators who have performed outstanding work in the field of cancer research. Entrants must have received their PhD or MD within the last 10 years. The award winner(s) will deliver a public lecture on their research, have their essay published in Science Translational Medicine, and receive $25,000.
The National Cancer Institute will give $2 million to four to five projects that advance our understanding of the role of the tumor niche or microenvironment in the risks, development, progression, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer for people who also have an HIV infection or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).
