The MRS recognizes excellence in the field of metastasis by awarding the Paget-Ewing Award. The Paget-Ewing Award is named after Sir Stephen Paget and Dr. James Ewing, pioneers in metastasis research in the late 19th and early 20th centuries who proposed the two major theories to explain organ selectivity of metastasis.
The Paget-Ewing Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Metastasis Research Society and honors a person's scientific excellence and substantial contributions to the understanding and/or control of cancer metastasis. Service to the MRS, or to the field in genera, is not a primary criterion for the award. The award is open to all members of the metastasis research community apart from current members of the Board of Directors of the Metastasis Research Society and will be offered biennially.
