The OSUCCC – James is proud to work with the Block family to recognize leadership in the field of cancer through the Herbert and Maxine Block Memorial Lectureship for Distinguished Achievement in Cancer.
The lectureship supports an international competitive process which annually identifies an individual whose contributions to cancer research, patient care and/or education have received international recognition. In 2009, the monetary award was increased to $25,000, making the Block Memorial Lectureship Award one of the largest prizes awarded by an academic institution in the field of cancer.
At the 2015 Lectureship in March, Carol Greider, PhD, Daniel Nathans Professor and Director, Molecular Biology and Genetics Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Biology was been named the recipient of the 21st Herbert and Maxine Block Memorial Lectureship Award for Distinguished Achievement in Cancer.
