MCR Michael B. Kastan Award for Research Excellence

Molecular Cancer Research (MCR) was launched in 2002, with Michael B. Kastan, MD, PhD as its founding Editor-in-Chief. His dedication and research acumen attracted scientific content that established MCR as a solid outlet for new discoveries that have led to a more molecular understanding of cancer progression. Through his leadership, the Journal developed into a platform devoted to communicating these discoveries to the broad scientific community. To honor that commitment and guidance, the MCR Michael B. Kastan Award for Research Excellence will be given yearly to the authors of an MCR Research Article that has had significant impact on the fields represented by the Journal.

Award Eligibility:

  • Candidates will be the first or corresponding author of a peer-reviewed, original Research Article published in MCR within the previous two years
  • The Research Article will have made significant and timely contribution in one or more content areas represented by the Journal
  • Although the first or corresponding author of the research article will be the formal awardee, all co-authors will be named as co-recipients of the Award in recognition of the importance of team science.

 

Award Criteria:

The MCR Editor-in-Chief and two additional editors for the Journal will select the Award recipient each year, in consideration of the following criteria:

  • Editors will prioritize those articles that have the potential to shift paradigms, inspire translational activity, and raise awareness of new scientific areas
  • Editors will prioritize articles that are representative of the Journal in terms of originality/novelty, scientific/clinical merit, and/or impact/significance

 

The Award:

The awardee (or his or her designated representative) will receive the Award at the AACR Annual Meeting. Funding will not be provided to attend the Annual Meeting; however, a cash prize of $1500 and a certificate will be given to the awardee.
