ASCO Honors Greenwald
Dr. Peter Greenwald, who has developed, nurtured, and quantified
the field of cancer prevention, received the American Society of
Clinical Oncology's 2002 American Cancer Society Award at
ASCO's annual meeting on May 18. He is director of the Division of
Cancer Prevention, NCI. The award is given to an individual who
has contributed significantly to the prevention and control of cancer.
As founding director of the Division of Cancer Prevention, he has
created and directed a program of research that incorporates not
only basic scientific investigations into early biomarkers of disease
but complements that with the research of social scientists,
educators and cross-cultural communication experts. Under
Greenwald's direction, the full gamut of clinical research, public
health and communications techniques work together, resulting in
programs that aim for a significant reduction in cancer incidence,
morbidity and mortality.
