CICR at the Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting is an extraordinary venue that fosters scientific discussions and helps build bridges across various disciplines. All annual meeting attendees are encouraged to capitalize on the opportunities during the meeting to learn about the latest breakthroughs in chemistry in cancer research, and network with other scientists and clinicians interested in the field, as well as to attend sessions outside your own areas of expertise. 

The AACR Annual Meeting 2018 will be held in Chicago, Illinois, April 14-18.

Plan to attend these CICR events at the Annual Meeting:

CICR Town Meeting and Networking Reception  

Sunday, April 15, 2018, 5:30 - 7 p.m. (immediately follows the New Drugs on the Horizon session)
McCormick Place Convention Center-South, Room S104

Chairperson: Melissa M. Vasbinder, PhD, Ribon Therapeutics, Inc., Lexington, Massachusetts
Chairperson-elect: Julian Blagg, DPhil, Institute of Cancer Research, London, United Kingdom

The Chemistry in Cancer Research Working Group (CICR) brings together cancer-focused scientists in chemistry and chemistry-related fields to discuss the present status and future promise of chemistry in the advancement of the prevention and cure of cancer. All CICR members are encouraged to attend and all interested annual meeting registrants are also cordially invited. Attendees will be updated on CICR events and the CICR Quarterly Newsletter, and will have the opportunity to raise questions and contribute ideas to help shape future CICR initiatives. Guests will also learn about CICR membership, meet the members of the steering committee, and connect with colleagues at a networking reception that follows the program.
