PHILADELPHIA -- Three Scholar Awards programs, sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research, will provide scientists traditionally underrepresented in cancer research with financial support to participate in the premier international meeting in the field. At the 2007 AACR Annual Meeting, more than 17,000 clinical oncologists, basic scientists, epidemiologists and translational researchers from around the world will discuss the latest findings and most significant information in laboratory, translational and clinical cancer research. More than 6,000 scientific abstracts will be presented this year.
