Scientist↔Survivor Program

Forging Partnerships to Accelerate Progress Against Cancer         

The AACR Scientist↔Survivor Program is designed to build enduring partnerships among the leaders of the scientific, cancer survivor, and patient advocacy communities worldwide. The program provides advocates with special lectures using lay language, small group discussions, and other opportunities for the exchange of information on key aspects of cancer research, survivorship, advocacy, and public policy. SSP at the Annual Meeting 2012


The Scientist↔Survivor Program takes place at various AACR scientific meetings. The program provides an opportunity for patient advocates to learn about cancer research and to interact with scientists, doctors, health professionals, and other advocates. These groups come together to discuss the latest findings in cancer research, foster collaborative interdisciplinary partnerships, and promote progress in new research in cancer health disparities.

The Scientist↔Survivor Program will be held at the AACR Annual Meeting 2016 in New Orleans, April 16-20, 2016. Participating advocates have already been selected for this year's program. The next program is scheduled during the AACR Cancer Health Disparities Conference 2016. Please check the website periodically for additional details. 

The AACR is thankful to its supporters of the ​Scientist↔Survivor Program
