The 2009 Frontiers in Basic Cancer Research was the first in a new AACR conference series to focus on the latest advances in basic cancer research. The conference was broad-based with the goals of presenting the best in basic cancer research and giving early-career investigators the opportunity to interact with leaders in the field. Over 500 researchers representing academic, government, and industry from 30 different countries participated in the conference creating synergies between the many subfields of basic cancer research.
