The Children’s Cause for Cancer Advocacy is pleased to announce the Leonard M. Rosen Memorial Research Award of $10,000, to be granted annually to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to childhood cancer policy and advocacy.
Relevant work should be related to advancing treatment and care for these children, adolescents and young adults and their families. Examples of areas of work include outcomes research, healthcare quality, delivery and cost, economics of drug development, improved access to therapeutic agents. The award recognizes the importance of the unique challenges associated with the care and treatment of children with cancer that may not be associated with the treatment and care for adults with cancer.
Individuals who are engaged in projects in the broad fields of childhood cancer policy and/or advocacy are encouraged to apply or to be nominated by colleagues or mentors.
Applicants are asked to submit a detailed Curriculum Vitae, including publications, a two-page statement of how the Rosen award will be used to advance policy and advocacy, and two references. Detailed research plans are not required.
The deadline for submission of applications is August 1, 2016. The inaugural Rosen Award will be made at the Children’s Cause annual gathering in New York City in November 2016.
