In recognition of the critical role played by the CCTG throughout her professional career, Dr. Frances Shepherd has provided support for an annual travel award to recognize excellence in clinical trials and translational research within CCTG research projects.
The Frances A Shepherd Award will be disbursed to one to two investigators or post-graduate trainees, traveling to present CCTG related work at major international meetings where the material has been accepted for presentation. Each award will be $1000 and offered twice a year. Applicants who have had their research accepted for oral or poster presentation at an international scientific meeting and have not received another award to support their travel are eligible to apply. The application is available here.
