Award of $50,000 to a Canada individual to recognize outstanding contributions to the field of cancer treatment, therapies, and patient care. This award is intended for an individual with an academic appointment who has made an impact on the clinical application of scientific discovery in the fight against cancer.

Among the criteria that will be considered is a distinguished record of translating scientific discoveries into clinical applications, forging partnerships with scientists and others to foster cancer research or to implement discoveries, and cultivating future leaders in the field.

The prize is awarded with the expectation that the recipient will continue to make outstanding contributions in the future, since this is not a lifetime achievement award.
