We thank everyone especially our young researcher - colleagues, who participated in this prize and our colleagues at the Enrico Anglesio Organizing Committee for the successful conduct of this first virtual edition.
The Enrico Anglesio Prize has been part of IACR's Annual Conference Programme since 2006. For this year, it was organised as a virtual edition - candidates were invited to present a written work on cancer epidemiology / cancer registration , that, in normal times, they would have presumably presented orally at a GRELL or the IACR Scientific Conference, and then submitted for publication on a Journal.
