in cancers and decreasing positive outcomes among African Americans
  • Clinical data illustrating the impact of the HPV-16/18 LI VLP AS04 candidate vaccine on precancerous lesions and the human papillomavirus
  • Studies demonstrating the protective effects of certain vegetables, fruits and tea against ovarian, pancreatic and breast cancers
  • Late-breaking findings from studies of cetuximab in people with chemotherapy-refractory colorectal cancer

    Additional briefings will focus on the latest research in patient prognosis, personalized medicine, inflammation, cancer biomarkers, stem cells and cancer diagnosis.

    With the aim of inspiring the next generation of young cancer researchers, the AACR has invited nearly 300 local high school students to participate in "The Conquest of Cancer and the Next Generation," a day-long program on the floor of the AACR meeting that will feature educational lectures and a tour of poster displays and exhibits as well as a networking reception. Many of these high school students will be paired with mentors among the AACR membership for guidance and education.

    "Over the last 100 years, the AACR has been privileged to be an integral part of the scientific discussion surrounding cancer," said William N. Hait, M.D., Ph.D., President-Elect, AACR. "It is critical that we maintain our commitment not only to providing a venue for research and collaboration but also to stimulating the achievement of the cancer scientists of the future."
