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 for best pre-clincial research and one for best clinical research study in lung cancer
The amount of each of the the Betty Rice awards is $2000.
