Synodos Review Committee Leader Anna Barker Receives Highest Recognition from the American Association for Cancer Research

Children’s Tumor Foundation Synodos Review Committee Leader Anna Barker, PhD, was presented a Special Recognition Award at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). This award was presented to individuals whose work has made extraordinary contributions to accelerate the prevention and cure of all cancers through research, education, communication, and collaboration.

“We are so proud that the AACR has recognized Ann for her visionary work in advancing cures,” said Annette Bakker, PhD, President and Chief Scientific Officer of the Children’s Tumor Foundation. “Ann and I have a big dream together of making NF more predictable for patients, so they can take definitive action against NF. Our joint partnership on biomarkers will boldly change NF research forever; while the cost is high ($12 million), it is essential because it means patients will live better, improved lives. For this and so much more, Ann is particularly deserving of this honor.”
