AACR reschedules annual meeting for July 11-14 in Washington, D.C.

The Board of Directors of the American Association for Cancer Research has voted to reschedule the AACR 94th Annual Meeting -- cancelled in Toronto, Canada, earlier this month as a result of the SARS outbreak -- for July 11-14 in the new Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

The decision to reschedule the meeting came after a large majority of registrants, abstract presenters and invited speakers -- surveyed over the past week by the Association -- said they would like to move forward as soon as possible with the Annual Meeting.

"I am personally delighted that members of the cancer research community consider this event so important to their work and the battle against this disease that they have asked us to reschedule this year rather than waiting for next year's Annual Meeting," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., chief executive officer of the AACR.

The program will remain virtually in tact, depending on commitments from scientific participants and sponsors.

Further information regarding the program, registration and refund policies, hotel and travel information, and other details will be announced on the AACR website at www.aacr.org and in e-mail announcements over the coming weeks.

"The choice to cancel our meeting in Toronto was a painful one for this organization, taken after many participants decided they could not attend because of the SARS outbreak there," said Dr. Foti.

"We are grateful to all those who understood the difficult position presented to us when we were forced to cancel," she added.
