Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program

Distinguished Alumni Award

Over the past three decades, the National Cancer Institute has provided state-of-the-art training in cancer prevention and control to a cadre of scientists and health professionals through the Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program (CPFP). The current network of more than 200 alumni includes persons working at NIH and other government agencies, universities, cancer centers, and other organizations across the globe. With its rich history and commitment to training researchers and future leaders in cancer prevention, we will once again recognize an outstanding member of our alumni through the CPFP Distinguished Alumni Award. This annual award was established by current fellows in 2011.
