This was the fourth AACR Special Conference to focus on the role of telomeres and telomerase in cancer research. A hallmark of previous conferences has been the large number of proffered papers included in the plenary sessions, which the organizers included in 2010 as well. The major objectives of this conference were to provide an overview of the field of telomeres and telomerase as these topics relate to cancer; to provide an overview of the current status of cancer research related to telomeres and telomerase; and to provide a forum for interaction, education, and synergy among cancer scientists and experts in the field of telomere biology. The conference provided a format for cancer researchers interested in learning the latest on telomere and telomerase biology that may pertain to their research program.
