Susan G. Komen for the Cure established the Professor of Survivorship Award in 1999 with the goal of advancing research and awareness on the issues surrounding long-term survivorship of breast cancer. Professor of Survivorship awards will be made to individuals who have made significant contributions in the field of breast cancer survivorship. A committee of peers and survivors will choose this honoree. The Survivorship Professor will continue in their role at his/her institution and continue his/her practice and research but will be expected to impact the issues encountered by breast cancer survivors by advancing research and education of these issues through publications and presentations.
A maximum of two awards will be made annually, and each award will include a gift of $20,000 for use in advancing breast cancer survivorship at the discretion of the professor. No institutional overhead will be allowed.
