  • Investigative Journalism, Newsletter/Trade Publications, first place, for “A Coup D’état, and a $12M Deal at the University of Utah,” by Paul Goldberg and Matthew Ong (The Cancer Letter, April 21, April 28, May 5, 2017)

  • Front Page Design, Newsletter/Trade Publications, first place, for “43 Years Later: A Redesign of The Cancer Letter,” By Jacqueline Ong and Katherine Goldberg

  • Series, Newsletter/Trade Publications, finalist, for “Real-World Data: A New Frontier in Cancer Bioinformatics,” by Matthew Ong (The Cancer Letter, June 2, June 9, 2017)

This is the first time The Cancer Letter has won design awards. Every week, our illustrator, Katherine Goldberg, offers a smart, irreverent take on events in oncology. Jacqueline Ong, our designer, undertook a snazzy redesign of the PDF version of The Cancer Letter.
