The Awards Committee continues to be active with a number of awards and research grants and one combined SNO/Tumor Section award administered through the Section on Tumors Awards Committee. Most of the awards are limited to Section on Tumors members, providing an additional incentive for membership.
The Section on Tumors also has two special awards to recognize exemplary contributions to the field.

The Brian D. Silber Award
