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.
