AACR 2018 Chicago
Driving Innovative Cancer Science to Patient Care
April 14 - 18, 2018, Chicago, IL
The AACR Annual Meeting is organized by the American Associaton For Cancer Research (AACR) and will be held at the McCormick Place Complex in Chicago, Illinois. The mission of the AACR is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration. Through its programs and services, the AACR fosters research in cancer and related biomedical science; accelerates the dissemination of new research findings among scientists and others dedicated to the conquest of cancer; promotes science education and training; and advances the understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world.
The AACR Annual Meeting highlights the best cancer science and medicine from institutions all over the world. Presentations at the Annual Meeting will cover the latest basic, translational, clinical, and prevention-focused research in the field, including important areas such as early detection, cancer interception, and survivorship in all populations. Attendees are invited to stretch their boundaries, form collaborations, attend sessions outside their own areas of expertise, and learn how to apply exciting new concepts, tools, and techniques to their own research.
