Sponsor a Biennial Award to an Outstanding Metastasis Researcher/Clinician

Anyone can foster excellence in the field of metastasis research and treatment by sponsoring one of our biennial awards.  We are currently accepting sponsorship for the awards listed below to be given out at our 2018 International Biennial Congress on Metastasis (August 2-5, 2018) at Princeton University in Princeton, NJ.  

The amount of each award is dependent upon the generosity of the sponsor, but awards typically start at $1,000 USD.  Award sponors will receive recognition in the congress program/abstract booklet and oral recognition during the congress.  The sponsor's name will also be included in news articles/press releases announcing awardees.  Please email us at metastasis.research@gmail.com if you are interested in sponsoring any award(s) listed below.
