About the Bothwell Prize


The Bothwell prize is awarded annually for a paper published by a team based at the University of Wisconsin and judged for its potential impact on the understanding or treatment of cancer.

This prize honors the legacy of Claire Bothwell, a young journalist who worked for the BBC in Scotland.  She was a staunch advocate for the potential of science to produce transformational ideas for cancer prevention, early intervention and improved treatments.
