Karlan Receives Cancer Society Award

Beth Y. Karlan, MD

Capping a string of recent accolades for her discoveries related to ovarian cancer, Beth Y. Karlan, MD, was honored Nov. 5 with an American Cancer Society Giants of Science award at a Beverly Hills gala.

Karlan, director of the Women’s Cancer Program in the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute and the Division of Gynecologic Oncology, and three other top local scientists were selected by a national committee to receive cancer society grants to continue their work in cancer research.

The cancer society noted Karlan’s translational — or "bench to bedside" — research, which "has helped shape current standards of ovarian cancer care and research." That includes findings about the inherited risk, early detection and treatment of ovarian cancer.

Cedars-Sinai recently honored Karlan with this year’s Pioneer in Medicine award, which recognizes the clinical and research contributions of a Cedars-Sinai medical staff member. She is the Board of Governors Endowed Chair in Gynecologic Oncology and a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Karlan was inducted last month into the National Academy of Medicine, one of the highest honors in health and medicine. The academy is a branch of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, the top U.S. source of expert advice on science, engineering and health.

"I consider being a physician-scientist a great privilege," Karlan said.
