The Rosalind Franklin Prize for Excellence in Ovarian Cancer Research is a $10,000 annual prize awarded to an individual in recognition of their outstanding contributions to basic science, translational, or clinical research in ovarian cancer.  Nominees should have a track record of high achievement in the field of ovarian cancer research, as demonstrated by significant contributions to the care of patients with gynecologic cancer and to the literature in the field, as well as having obtained significant extramural research funding. The prize rewards past achievement and provides further incentive for an outstanding working scientist to continue to do exceptional research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of ovarian cancer.
