The Betty Rice Award for Lung Cancer Research was established by the Rice Family in memory of Mrs. Rice who died of lung cancer several years ago. The Betty Rice Award was established to promote lung cancer research by clinical fellows or graduate students. This year, we are happy to announce that two awards will be bestowed in honour of Mrs. Rice. One award will be given for best clinical research study in lung cancer and a second award will be given for best laboratory oriented research study in lung cancer.
The amount of each award is $3000.
The awards are open to medical, radiation, and research fellows interested in thoracic malignancy.
The applications will be reviewed by a multi-disciplinary committee that will include Dr. Kevin Rice, son of Mrs. Betty Rice, a radiologist at UCLA and Dr. Stephen Lam, Chair of the Betty Rice Award Review Committee, BC Cancer Research Center. The awardees will give a short presentation of their research during the Canadian Lung Cancer Conference on Friday February 9th, 2018.
