Research team honored for innovative science to advance cancer research
Date:2/7/2011

a monovalent HPV 16 vaccine protected against HPV 16 infection and disease.

"Our team is thrilled to receive such a wonderful honor," said Galloway. "Credit is due to the entire HPV research community the investigators, research fellows, students and study participants who helped to make our efforts a reality. We are delighted to have been able to contribute to an international team of scientists that collectively moved the field from a state in which the etiology of cervical cancer was not known, to now have vaccines to prevent HPV."

Additionally, Galloway and colleagues developed and tested new strategies for early detection and treatment of HPV-related cancers. Their clinical studies demonstrated the cost-effectiveness of using HPV DNA testing of clinician-collected cervical samples or self-collected vaginal samples in screening programs as well as the potential for using novel biomarkers to more accurately diagnose HPV-related cancers and precancerous lesions.

The AACR Team Science Award, generously supported by a grant from Eli Lilly and Company, is given to affect change within the traditional cancer research culture by recognizing those individuals and institutions that value and foster interdisciplinary team science. The team will collectively receive a $50,000 prize and will be cited for its leadership role in fostering team science. Honorees include (in alphabetical order):

  • Janet Daling, Ph.D., member emeritus, public health sciences division, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and professor emeritus, department of epidemiology, University of Washington;

  • Denise Galloway, Ph.D., member, human biology and public health sciences divisions, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and research professor, departments of microbiology and pathology, University of Washington;

  • James Hughes, Ph.D., professor, department of biostatistics, University of Washington;
