International scientists, physicians assemble at AACR Annual Meeting to discuss latest advances

World-renowned scientists, physicians, academicians and advocates will gather for the 97th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), taking place April 1-5 at the Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C. About 16,000 attendees from around the world are expected at this year's meeting where presentations will focus on the latest cutting-edge findings in laboratory, translational and clinical cancer research.

"We are at a critical juncture in the field of cancer research and the exchange of scientific information has taken on a greater urgency," said Peter Jones, Ph.D., D.Sc., president of the AACR. "With pending cuts to the research budget of the National Institutes of Health, and specifically the National Cancer Institute, the free-flow of information shared amongst researchers and oncologists at the AACR Annual Meeting has never played a greater role in advancing the field."

This year's Annual Meeting will focus on new and promising therapeutic approaches for the prevention and treatment of cancer, and will highlight data from all stages of the research spectrum - from early stage basic research through late-stage clinical trial results.

The opening plenary session, "Looking into the Future of Cancer Therapy," will feature world leaders in the fields of cancer genetics, molecular diagnostics, chemistry, imaging, clinical research, and stem cell biology.

Additionally, a special clinical plenary session, "Breakthroughs in Clinical Research," will be offered for the first time at AACR.

During this session, investigators will discuss major breaking news about late-phase clinical trials, highlighting the science that led up to the trials and new data with direct clinical impact.

"We believe that the accelerating pace of cancer research discoveries is unprecedented and will lead to opportunities for more effective treatment of many forms of cancer. The rapid progress in our underst
