Carcinogenesis Award Winners

The awards, sponsored by Oxford University Press, are presented at the biannual meetings of the European Association for Cancer Research. The Anthony Dipple Carcinogenesis Award is for major contributions to research in the field of carcinogenesis, and the Carcinogenesis Young Investigator Award is for a recent, significant contribution to carcinogenesis research by an investigator under the age of 40.

Nominations, together with reasons for the recommendation and details of relevant publications, are sent to the decision-making panel consisting of the editors of Carcinogenesis and members of the Editorial Board.
