Request a Grant Writer

Award of $30,000 to a USA, Canada, or International individual to recognize an original breakthrough or discovery in the field of cancer research. Candidates for this award have furthered cancer prevention, treatments, and early diagnosis. The discovery must have had a significant impact on the cancer field and made a direct impact on saving lives.

Nominations are reviewed and evaluated based on the following criteria:

  1. The candidate is nominated for a seminal discovery or a pioneering body of work that has contributed to cancer prevention, diagnosis, or treatment, and
  2. The candidate’s work has had a lasting impact on understanding cancer, holding the promise of improving or saving the lives of cancer patients.

The Szent-Györgyi Prize serves to stimulate continued investment in the pioneering research that will produce scientific breakthroughs. It intends to deepen the understanding of the underlying basis of cancer and the translation of this knowledge to improve the lives for cancer patients. By calling attention annually to achievements in this area, it is the goal of the Szent-Györgyi Prize to heighten awareness of the research and discovery that leads to new cancer treatments and cancer cures.

The Prize also promotes public awareness of the importance of basic cancer research and the need to accelerate the translation of these research discoveries into new cancer treatments.
