STM Awards

J. Eugene Robinson Award

The J. Eugene Robinson Award is presented each year to an investigator who has made outstanding contributions to hyperthermic oncology. This lecture is to acknowledge the work of J. Eugene Robinson who was a pioneer in hyperthermic research for 20 years. He first used hyperthermia as an anti-cancer agent in the late 1960's and continued his investigations in various areas related to hyperthermia including thermal dose and time-temperature relationships. This award is given to investigators in each of the three main disciplines in Thermal Medicine (physics, biology and clinical/medicine) in a rotating fashion each year.

George M. Hahn Award

The George M. Hahn Award is presented every other year to an investigator whose research has contributed in a significant way to new clinical applications in thermal therapy. This lecture is named in honor of Dr. George Hahn who received the first Robinson Award in 1989. Dr. Hahn led a highly productive clinical program grant at Stanford for many years and his fundamental work in the heat shock response and in how hyperthermia modifies chemotherapy sensitivity still stand today as foundational work. His highly productive career exemplifies the translational attributes of this award.

Past Recipients:

2010   Milton Yatvin, PhD
2012 Donald E. Thrall, DVM, PhD

2013 Gail ter Haar, PhD
2015 Paul Stauffer, PhD

William C. Dewey Award

The William C. Dewey award is presented every other year to an investigator who has contributed in a significant way to the mentorship and training of new investigators in the field of thermal medicine. This lecture is named in honor of Dr. Bill Dewey who trained many leaders in our field in all three disciplines (physics, biology and clinical/medical). His emphasis on making hyperthermia treatment a quantifiable therapy with a defined method for performing thermal dosimetry has stood the test of time and has influenced how hyperthermia and thermal ablation are practiced today.

New Investigator Travel Awards

The STM provides travel awards of up to $500 to encourage the participation of new Scholars at the STM Annual Meeting. The number of awards vary from year to year.

In 2016, the STM and ICHO Awards Committees provided travel awards to 25 New Investigators so they could attend the 12th International Congress of Hyperthermic Oncology.

Travel Award recipients are based upon a competitive evaluation of their submitted abstracts and New Investigator Award applications. 

 

STM New Investigator Awards Application Criteria


1. A person may apply for a New Investigator Award, regardless of current degree, as long as he/she is working towards a higher degree (e.g., Ph.D., M.D., and D.V.M.), or has less than three years since receiving a postgraduate degree.

2. The application must be completed and signed by both the faculty sponsor and the institution’s department chair.

3. The applicant must submit an abstract via online submission and a New Investigator Membership Application to the STM Business Office by the deadline for the current year's meeting. Applications received after this date will not be considered.

4. To be considered, each applicant must be a STM New Investigator member or have a membership application pending.

5. Winners from previous years are eligible to apply for this award after 
sitting out for one year.
