Dynamic interactions and exciting science characterize all of the AACR’s meetings, conference, and educational workshops. The AACR Annual Meeting, the largest of its kind in the world for cancer researchers, attracts more than 18,000 researchers from over 60 countries each spring. AACR’s programs offer an unparalleled range of conferences for cancer scientists.
In addition to the Annual Meeting, the AACR holds several large conferences (500-3,000 attendees) that focus on the latest developments and advances in Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics (joint meeting with European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer and the National Cancer Institute), Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, Cancer Health Disparities, and Frontiers in Basic Cancer Research.
Several special conferences (150-500 attendees) are held each year that focus on emerging areas of cancer research and specific disease sites.
AACR’s educational workshops and special courses provide early-career investigators with opportunities to develop skills in clinical trial design, molecular biology, pathobiology and related fields. Many programs supplement the educational aspects with mentoring, networking, and career development opportunities. Coupled with a broad array of educational and career development sessions at the Annual Meeting and year-round Associate Member Council programs/initiatives, younger researchers are prepared for the next vital steps in their careers.
