INCTR Awards

At the time of Past Biennial Meetings, INCTR presented two awards – The Nazli Gad-el-Mawla Award and the Paul P Carbone Award in International Oncology. These were awarded to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to cancer treatment and research in developing countries. The purpose of these awards was not simply to recognize and honor the recipients, but also to show, by their example, that much can be accomplished even when resources are limited. It is hoped that their work and philosophy as presented during their award lectures would inspire others within a broader audience to greater efforts.

Each of the awards is named after a distinguished oncologist. They began their careers when there was so little knowledge about the causes of cancer, that people could only live in fear that they would one day be a victim, while the diagnosis was usually hidden from those unfortunate enough to develop cancer because so little could be done for them. It is thanks to the resolution and fortitude of Dr Nazli Gad-el-Mawla, Dr Paul P Carbone and others like them, who worked through a time when cancer specialists were often accused of prolonging the misery of cancer victims through their efforts at treatment rather than helping them, that today, at least in the wealthier nations, more than half of those who develop cancer can be cured. Both Dr Nazli and Dr Carbone were responsible for training numerous young people, and so leave us a precious legacy through which their work will be continued.
