Faculty or non-faculty cancer research investigators that are formally and verifiably associated with both the cancer research project described in the application and the Salisbury Award Pitch host institution.

Opening remarks, followed immediately by a series of Salisbury Award Pitch presentations by individual faculty or non-faculty investigators or designated team members addressing proprietary cancer therapeutic projects*. PowerPoint or similar presentation formats are required. Presenters are to be on-site well in advance of their predesignated time slot, and abide by the maximum 30-minute time limit, including segue and question and answer periods, which will be strictly enforced per presentation.

Decisions and announcement of the Salisbury Award Pitch winner and runner-up will be made by the panel of judges minutes after the final presentation’s conclusion, and respective $3,000 and $1,5000 honorarium checks will be conveyed and photographs taken immediately thereafter. All presenters are asked to be present at that time.

*The Salisbury Award has been designed primarily to help catalyze and raise the profile of cancer therapeutic candidates, although three additional categories too will be considered: diagnostic, preventive vaccine or research platform technologies.
