Building the next generation of cancer researchers

To help expand the pool of scientists needed to combat cancer in the next generation, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) sponsors two special programs at the Annual Meeting to encourage and stimulate young students to take up careers in cancer and biomedical research.

AACR's Special Program for High School Students is organized by the AACR Science Education Committee to provide unique and lively exchanges between students and distinguished cancer researchers. The program consists of three excellent opportunities for student exposure to the world of cancer research:


  • special presentations by eminent scientists and a cancer survivor on the latest research advances in the field;
  • a guided tour of the poster and exhibit areas; and
  • a networking session in which the students interact with both junior and senior scientists, present posters or exhibits of their school projects, learn about job opportunities and summer internships, and get to know each other.

The Special Program for High School Students will take place 9:30 p.m. 2:45 p.m., Monday, April 7, in Room 714 in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

AACR-Thomas J. Bardos Science Education Awards for Undergraduate Students is a special program designed to inspire young science students to enter the field of cancer research. Through this program, AACR continues its commitment to promoting the education and training of the next generation of scientists and to facilitating and nurturing their careers in cancer research or cancer-related biomedical science. Since the Science Education Awards were founded in 1997, they have been supported by generous annual contributions from a distinguished AACR member, Dr. Thomas J. Bardos. Dr. Bardos' contributions have been matched by those of AACR. The Board of Directors of AACR expresses its deep appreciation for the foresight, leadership, and generosity of Dr. Bardos in encouraging the creation of
