Brief Description

ACS Professor awards are primarily honorific awards for individuals who have made seminal contributions in cancer research. Applicants must be at the rank of full professor and have made, and will likely continue to make, impactful contributions to change the direction of cancer research. These notably cancer research achievements could have been fundamental, preclinical, clinical, psychosocial, behavioral, health policy and/or epidemiologic in focus. Commitment and success in scientific mentoring and leadership as well as community engagement are also carefully considered.

The award of up to $80,000 per year for 5 years can be budgeted at the applicant’s discretion to support creative and innovative pursuits in cancer research. ACS Professors are expected to be spokespeople for ACS and for cancer research in general.

Interested applicants must first submit a letter of intent and their curriculum vitae with a complete bibliography in ProposalCentral. Upon receipt, we will provide appropriate guidance either by telephone or email.
