Barton Kamen-MGHI Prize : call for abstract

We are very proud to launch the call for abstract for the first

Barton Kamen-MGHI prize

The prize is given in honor of Pr. Barton Kamen, pediatric oncologist, pioneer in the field of metronomic chemotherapy. Barton has been one of the leading force that has kept the field of metronomics alive when it was facing resistance/skepticism from clinicians. Barton has also been a source of inspiration for clinical colleagues, scientists and mentored many junior scientists. Barton Kamen was also the first very MGHI ambassador. Through this prize, we wish to acknowledge his critical role for the field of metronomics and maintain his legacy alive by rewarding a clinician or a scientist working in the field of metronomics. For the first prize, priority will be given to work focusing on children living in low and middle countries

This prize is awarded to the author of the best submitted scientific article. The winner will present his work and receive the prize during the 4th Metronomic Meeting that will take place in Milano in June 2014 (click here for more information) All accepted abstracts will be published on the MGHI website.

The dead-line for submission is 30/03/2014 Results will be given by email before the 10th of April.
