Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics 2011


Due to the high amount of sensitive data in the abstracts for this conference, abstract bodies will not be made available online until Saturday, November 12, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. U.S. PST, when onsite registration opens and the abstracts are available to all registrants. However, abstract titles and authors are now available for searching and browsing in the Online Proceedings/Itinerary Planner. The abstracts will also be published as an online-only supplement to the AACR journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics in late November.

A small number of abstract bodies has been blocked and will not appear in the Program and Proceedings or online on November 12. These abstracts will become available at their meeting presentations and will be available as part of the online-only supplement to Molecular Cancer Therapeutics shortly after the conference.
