'Meeting of the minds' leads new era in fight against cancer

Orlando, Fla. Leading researchers are gathering today for the 95th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the premier multidisciplinary assembly, which features the latest developments in basic, prevention, translational and clinical cancer research. The meeting occurs from March 27 31, 2004 at the Orlando Convention Center, Fla.

"Because scientific advances are pushing forward at such an incredible pace, our insight into cancer mechanism and progression is growing exponentially," said Karen Antman, M.D., president of AACR. "The AACR Annual Meeting will help us harness this information to develop and discover cutting-edge diagnostics and treatments necessary to conquer this disease."

This year's Annual Meeting will spotlight new information and innovations that are leading to a new understanding of cancer and its course of action. Presentations by top scientists will include novel technologies and research approaches, lifesaving therapies in the pipeline, and new insights into prevention.

"Thanks to persistence and determination on part of the researchers, we can better understand the intricacies of cancer that will ultimately lead to its cure," said Dr. Antman.

The discussions presented during the opening plenary session, Targeting the Conquest of Cancer through Conceptual Integration and Innovation (Sunday, March 28, 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.), reflect the theme of this year's Annual Meeting Information Integration for Innovation.

Researchers will present a broad range of discoveries in the field of cancer research, including an in-depth review of telomerase, a DNA shield which may be central to cancer progression, followed by a continued investigation into the impact of COX-2. The increasingly important area of genomics also will be highlighted by researchers who will discuss the identification of undiscovered gene functions as potential targets for the development of anti-cancer dr
