The Cancer Research Foundation has been funding cancer science for more than sixty years. Before the Young Investigator Awards and the Fletcher Scholars Awards were established, the Cancer Research Foundation had the opportunity to fund individuals who have gone on to truly change the landscape of cancer research. We wish to honor those past CRF recipients here.

"Discovery is our business. Science is not cold and unfeeling. In scientific investigation one becomes emotionally contained in his problem. Head, heart, and hand, the three H's of experimentation, all are involved in innovation in the medical sciences and the combination enables us to recognize a good problem that can be solved."Charles B. Huggins, M.D.
University of Chicago School of Medicine Recipient of first CRF grant, circa 1945 Winner of Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology, 1966
