Oncology Professor Among UW-Madison Kellett Award Winners
Madison, Wisconsin - Dr. Paul Lambert, professor of oncology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, is one of 10 UW-Madison faculty members being honored for their research with Kellett Mid-Career Awards.
Lambert studies papillomaviruses that cause human cancer and recently identified a novel approach for treating and preventing these cancers. He is an editor of the journal Virology and director of the Cancer Biology graduate program. He also helped create a UW-Madison class on science ethics.
The Kellett award, supported by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), recognizes outstanding mid-career faculty members who are five to 20 years past the first promotion to a tenured position. Each winner, chosen by a Graduate School committee, receives a $60,000 flexible research award.
The award is named for William R. Kellett, a former president of the WARF board of trustees and retired president of Kimberly-Clark Corp.
