“We are excited to have nominations open for our second Mary Beth Maddox Award and Lectureship recipient. Cancer research in Texas is really thriving and we can’t wait to meet the next outstanding woman fighting for a cure. We hope you’ll consider nominating an outstanding candidate today.”
Nominations are now open for the 2023 Mary Beth Maddox Award and Lectureship.
The award recognizes women scientists in Texas bringing new ideas and innovations to the fight against cancer. It was created in memory and honor of former TAMEST Executive Director Mary Beth Maddox who passed away in 2018 after a valiant battle with pancreatic cancer.
The nominee must have spent the last two years performing cancer research in Texas and be within 10 years of her first faculty appointment or 15 years from her first full-time industry-affiliated position.
The recipient will be recognized at the TAMEST 2023 Annual Conference: Forward Texas—Accelerating Change next May, where she will present her research to attendees and receive a $5,000 honorarium and award. The 2023 Annual Conference will be held May 23–25, 2023 at the InterContinental Houston–Medical Center in Houston, Texas.
The recipient will also promote her work and discoveries across the state through a series of lectureships at NIH National Cancer Institute Designated Cancer Centers in Texas.
Qualified nominators include TAMEST Members, university presidents, chancellors, deans, provosts, vice presidents for research, and past Mary Beth Maddox and Edith and Peter O’Donnell Awards recipients. Multiple nominators from a single institution or organization will be eligible.
Nominations are open through Friday, December 2, 2022.
