William B. Coley Award for Distinguished
Research in Basic and Tumor Immunology

This award is given to one or more scientists for outstanding achievements in the field of basic immunology and cancer immunology. Awardees receive an honorary medal and $5,000 prize. The award was established in 1975 in honor of Dr. William B. Coley, a pioneer of cancer immunotherapy, whose daughter, Helen Coley Nauts, founded the Cancer Research Institute.

That first year, the award was shared by 16 scientists considered to be the "founders of cancer immunology." In total, 73 scientists around the world have received this honor.
