SITC 2016 awards recognize the lifetime achievements of a key leader, as well as support the advancement of early career scientists and up-and-coming researchers in the cancer immunotherapy field.
In celebration of our 31st year of advancing cancer immunotherapy worldwide, SITC will present 31 travel awards to young investigators recognizing excellence in novel research, providing young investigators with the experience necessary for successful careers and acknowledging the need for the next generation of cancer immunologists to engage with luminaries in the field. All awards are supported by the Forward Fund.
Richard V. Smalley, MD Memorial Award
In memory of past Society president and charter member, Dr. Richard V. Smalley, SITC is proud to present the Richard V. Smalley, MD Memorial Award each year to a recognizable clinician or scientist and luminary in the field that has significantly contributed to the advancement of cancer immunotherapy research.
Established in 2005, the Society’s most prestigious award serves to honor those that have been pioneers in their work and made a notable impact worthy of high regard and recognition by their peers.
