The 105th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research will be held April 5-9, 2014, in San Diego, California. As always, this AACR Annual Meeting will highlight the latest and most exciting discoveries in every area of cancer research, and it will provide a unique opportunity for investigators from all over the world to meet, network, and forge new scientific interactions. This year’s Annual Meeting theme, “Harnessing Breakthroughs • Targeting Cures,” reflects the great progress being made in cancer research as discoveries in the lab are translated into treatments in an increasingly targeted and precise manner. We will also continue to hold several sessions that will feature presentations of new data on cutting-edge clinical trials along with commentaries on the science behind the trials and the implications of these trials for improved patient care.
An important new feature of the AACR Annual Meeting 2014 will be to include talks by rising stars in cancer research in several of the major sessions. Along with the hundreds of invited talks, we will feature over 6,000 proffered papers by researchers from all over the world. We want to thank the Program Committee Co-Chairpersons for their incredible expertise, dedication, and guidance in shaping an innovative program that will be both enjoyable and educational.
It is clear that recent progress against cancer will lead to even greater opportunities for the prevention, treatment, and cures for all types of cancer as we become more entrenched in the era of precision medicine. We are confident that attending the AACR Annual Meeting will give you renewed energy, inspiration, and focus in your work. We look forward to seeing you in San Diego.
