Scientists, physicians discuss latest discoveries for stopping cancer before it starts

research the quest to identify drugs and other substances that will ward off the onset of cancer, hinder its progress, reverse its course or diminish the chances of its recurrence is augmenting the search for a cure.

"AACR launched the annual cancer prevention meetings last year, to facilitate the exchange of research results from laboratories and clinical trials, foster translational research, and strengthen the vitally important partnership among basic scientists, clinical oncologists, physician-scientists, behavioral scientists, and epidemiologists from academia, government, and industry, as well as cancer survivor groups," said Karen S. H. Antman, M.D., AACR president and Wu Professor of Medicine and Professor of Pharmacology, Division of Oncology, Department of Medicine, Columbia University, New York.

"This second annual, multidisciplinary conference will link the biology of the cancer process with its clinical prevention and reversal in pre-invasive stages," she added.

In addition to dozens of symposia and poster sessions, the conference will include a lecture by Waun Ki Hong, M.D., of The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. Dr. Hong will receive the second annual AACR-Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation (CRPF) Award for Excellence in Cancer Prevention Research at the meeting, and speak to the participants on the subject of cancer chemoprevention at the molecular level.

The conference will open with a keynote address by Robert A. Weinberg, Ph.D.

Dr. Weinberg is Professor of Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Daniel K. Ludwig and American Cancer Society Professor for Cancer Research at MIT's Whitehead Institute, both in Cambridge, Mass. Hamilton Jordan, former White House Chief of Staff, cancer survivor, patient advocate and author will give a special presentation during the opening session as well.

Dr. Weinberg's remarks will examine another aspect of cancer prevention: the
