To catapult their research careers—and their impact on cancer—the Foundation will make an additional investment in these exceptional individuals by selecting them as recipients of the Dale F.

Frey, retired Chairman of the Damon Runyon Board of Directors, in recognition of his sixteen years of visionary leadership.
