Join us for the Second AACR Conference on Hematologic Malignancies: Translating Discoveries to Novel Therapies! This conference will include presentations pertaining to leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndrome, and myeloproliferative neoplasms, spanning the spectrum of cancer science and medicine, from basic science discoveries to their translation in the clinic. Plenary sessions will be centered on scientific topics relevant to all blood cancers, such as genomics, epigenetics, cell death pathways, the tumor microenvironment, and chemical biology, as well as translational and clinical topics such as resistance and response to therapy, immunotherapy, and more.

This conference offers a unique opportunity for a lively discussion, in a small setting, of the challenges in the field among basic, translational, and clinical researchers, and for potential collaborations between national and international investigators.

There will be ample opportunities for networking, both with colleagues over scientific topics and with the stellar roster of invited speakers. Additionally, short talks from submitted abstracts will be selected for inclusion in the plenary sessions.

Make plans to join us this May in Boston for a program that will be appealing and of collaborative and educational benefit for scientists and clinicians studying any of the hematologic malignancies!
