In recognition of CEBP’s Editor-in-Chief who served from 1997–2002, the CEBP Frederick P. Li Impact Award is awarded to the first author of an article published in the Journal that has had a major impact on the fields represented by the Journal’s content areas, with the awardee's coauthors named as corecipients of the Award.
A committee of three scientists named by the CEBP Editor-in-Chief selects the Award winner each year based on the committee’s evaluation of the following criteria: originality; scientific, clinical, and/or public health impact; and overall significance as measured by citations and other publication metrics over a five-year period prior to Award consideration. Papers that have raised awareness of an important cancer-related issue, launched a new direction of research, or inspired novel translational activities are of significant interest.
The Award recipient will be invited to the Journals Reception and Scientific Achievement Awards Recognition Dinner that take place during the AACR Annual Meeting. A cash prize of $1,500 and a certificate will be given to the awardee.
