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 an award will be bestowed in honour of Mrs. Rice for best clinical research study in lung cancer.


The amount of the Betty Rice award is $3000.

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 awardee will give a short presentation of their research during the Canadian Lung Cancer Conference on Friday February 8th, 2019.

Interested applicants should submit a one page abstract (please include the title, co-authors and institution) of the research work by December 15th, 2018 by filling out the form below.
