The Alfred P. Sloan Jr. Prize was a $250,000 award given by the General Motors Cancer Research Foundation for outstanding oncological research.[1][2]

The prize was awarded annually from 1979 to 2005. Of the winners, 15 out of 37 have gone on to win either a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine or a Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

in 2006, due to budget constraints, the Alfred P. Sloan Jr. prize, the Charles K. Kettering prize, and the Charles S. Mott Prize were consolidated into a single General Motors Cancer Research Award which also had a value of $250,000.[3] The first and only winner of the General Motors Cancer Research Award was Napoleone Ferrara.[4]

After 2006 no more prizes were awarded.[citation needed]
