2014 Winners

Through a generous commitment of $25 million from the Pershing Square Foundation, the Pershing Square Sohn Cancer Research Alliance has created a prestigious program that will award $1.2 million to exceptional young scientists in New York City with innovative ideas in the field of cancer research. The Prize winners, selected by a panel of extraordinary leaders in medical research, are encouraged to take risks and pursue bold ideas that will lead to new discoveries and new approaches in cancer research. In the quest for cures, the Prize will accelerate collaboration between academia, industry and the business community and play a catalytic role to secure traction for new ideas with non-profit and for-profit investors.
