Plans call for the first James B. Nachman ASCO Junior Faculty Award in Pediatric Oncology to be awarded at the 2012 ASCO Annual Meeting. The award will be given each year to a junior faculty member who submits the highest-scoring abstract in pediatric oncology for the ASCO Annual Meeting, as determined by the ASCO Scientific Program Committee. The total award is $3,000, which includes honorarium and costs associated with attending the ASCO Annual Meeting.

The Conquer Cancer Foundation celebrates the lead donors who established the Award, as well as those whose philanthropic support has enabled the Foundation to grow it to scale.
