The St. Baldrick’s Foundation announces that nominations are now open for a unique award in loving memory of Dr. Bob Arceci.

Two Robert J. Arceci Innovation Awards will be made per year, one to a U.S. or Canadian researcher to be presented at the 2016 ASPHO meeting, and one international award to be presented at the 2016 SIOP meeting.

Each award is $250,000 per year for three years, to support truly innovative childhood cancer research. The award reflects Bob’s values, including thinking outside the box, international research, and development of the next generation of scientists. St. Baldrick’s Foundation is funding the award, which was developed in collaboration with the leadership of SIOP, ASPHO and the COG.
