Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Researchers Awarded as Leaders in Oncology
Four researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, a Council member, have received the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s (ASCO) highest honors for their work in cancer research and care.
The ASCO Special Awards, the society’s highest, are awarded to medical professionals and researchers who have “worked to transform cancer care around the world.” The subject areas awarded by ASCO vary from research and diagnosis to teaching excellence and cancer prevention. In addition, three doctors from Dana-Farber received the ASCO’s award for volunteer service and commitment to the society and oncology in general.
“It is an honor to recognize the inspiring achievements of this year’s awardees, and their dedication to conquering cancer,” said Monica M. Bertagnolli, MD, FACS, FASCO, immediate past president of ASCO and chair of the Special Awards Selection Committee.
