Featured Programs

New Frontiers for Cancer Research

This Scientific Symposium brings together world-class cancer researchers and experts in oncology to share their challenges and findings. We aim to facilitate future collaborations and information sharing across institutions through keynote speeches and panel discussions on key research areas.

This forum helps our research community remain at the cutting edge of science, where breakthroughs become new drugs and technologies to best detect and treat cancer.

Women’s Leadership Forum

We launched the AIM-HI Women’s Initiatives to help empower women in oncology and create a sustainable impact for cancer patients through their ventures worldwide.

The annual Beacon Award for Women Leaders in Oncology honors, recognizes, and elevates trailblazing women leaders. In contrast, the annual Women’s Venture Competition funds, advises, and mentors women scientist-entrepreneurs developing innovative oncology technologies.

Szent-Györgyi Prize Award Ceremony

The Szent-Györgyi Prize for Progress for Cancer Research is the principal scientific program of the National Foundation for Cancer Research. Named in honor of our Co-Founder and Noble Laureate, Albert Szent-Györgyi, this award recognizes scientists whose seminal discovery or pioneering body of work has had a lasting impact on understanding cancer and holds the promise of improving or saving the lives of cancer patients.

The Award Ceremony is celebrated with a cocktail reception and dinner (black-tie optional). The prize honorees will give a speech highlighting their award-winning accomplishments and their impacts on cancer patients.
