The UNC Lineberger Cancer Center announces The Marci Kramish Campbell Dissertation Award, a competitive $5,000 award to recognize excellence in dissertation research focused on cancer and the population sciences. Applications are due March 31. Visit the Dissertation Award page for more information.
This award honors Dr. Marci Kramish Campbell, a leader in cancer prevention and control, disparities, and survivorship research at UNC-Chapel Hill and across the nation. Marci died much too soon from colon cancer in December 2011. She was an exceptional mentor and believed producing the next generation of researchers was one of our most important aims.
Graduate students in any of the population disciplines (epidemiology, nutrition, behavioral sciences, health services and outcomes research, psychology, etc.) are encouraged to apply. Candidates should be in their final year with a dissertation defense that will occur in the 2017-18 academic year (i.e., between June 2017 and May 2018). The faculty sponsor must be a Cancer Center member.
