It is completely unknown why some metastatic cancers are curable while the vast majority are not. If we understood the reasons for these favorable results, we might be able to apply them to the more resistant forms of human tumors. To inspire students to generate original and creative ideas to solve this riddle, we are challenging Johns Hopkins trainees to compete for the Rangos Medal along with a cash prize. We will also assist the trainees in ways to test their ideas. The award is open to currently enrolled full-time trainees at any division of The Johns Hopkins University including undergraduate, graduate and medical students, residents and fellows. Answers must be the ideas of the trainees and cannot have been funded from another source to be eligible. All aspects of the student's idea and this award must comply with all Johns Hopkins University policies.
Applicants must prepare an essay of no longer than five pages (single spaced), including references, with scientific support that addresses the riddle of cancer described above. A University-wide panel will independently score the essays and the top five will be invited to give a presentation of their idea. The awardees will be selected from these presenters. The application deadline is November 1, 2011. For more details, and to apply, go to: http://prostatecancerprogram.onc.jhmi.edu/rangosAward.
