In his honor and with your generosity, together we will establish the
Dr. Christopher G. Wood Endowment. This $2,000,000 endowment will
fund two merit awards and one grant.
DR. CHRISTOPHER G. WOOD RISING STAR AWARD
The Dr. Christopher G. Wood Rising Star Award will be given at IKCS: North America and IKCS: Europe to a junior-level faculty who shows clear promise in advancing the kidney cancer space. The award reflects Dr. Wood’s dedication to educating, mentoring, and supporting the next generation of providers.
THE KCA CHRISTOPHER G. WOOD MEMORIAL GRANT
On an annual basis, as the fund allows, the KCA Christopher G. Wood Memorial Grant will award $80,000 to support research focused on early-stage kidney cancer care. As a dedicated surgeon, Dr. Wood had a tremendous impact on his patients’ lives and believed in the promise of research to transform kidney cancer care.
