Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre 


This award recognizes outstanding postdoctoral fellows from any discipline who are conducting research related to cancer, infectious diseases, or basic science.


The award was created to recognize Dr. Méndez’s commitment to cancer research and to supporting early-career underrepresented minority scientists and scientists with disabilities. This award recognizes the achievements of post-doctoral fellows from backgrounds that are underrepresented in science based on the NIH definition, which includes individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups (Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders), individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.A selection committee consisting of Fred Hutch faculty will select up to six awardees. A honorarium and all expenses related to travel and accommodations will be provided by Fred Hutch.

Awardees will present at a scientific symposium honoring Dr. Eddie Méndez and have the opportunity to meet with Fred Hutch faculty and senior leaders. Our hope is to hold this event in person on the Fred Hutch campus in Seattle sometime between May-October 2021, but given the current uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic we are at this time unable to provide a firm date for the symposium or determine whether the format will be in person or virtual.
