AACR Scientific Achievement AwardsSince 1961, the AACR has presented hundreds of Scientific Achievement Awards and Lectureships to recognize the scientific accomplishments of basic and translational scientists, physician-scientists, prevention researchers, epidemiologists, and other researchers who have made significant contributions to the understanding of cancer biology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment.

Space for Special FunctionsThe AACR will consider requests for space for special functions or receptions in the official AACR Annual Meeting hotels. These requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Any corporation that wishes to entertain during the Annual Meeting must be an exhibitor at the meeting. Space request forms are included in the Exhibitor Services Manual.
Assistance for Physically Challenged RegistrantsThe AACR Annual Meeting is accessible to all attendees. Registrants with special requirements for transportation, hotel accommodations, or other facilities connected with the meeting should notify the AACR in advance by checking the appropriate box when registering and providing the necessary details or by emailing Kelsey Kliwinski in the Meetings and Exhibits Department at
firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, a list of organizations in Atlanta, Georgia, that offer special equipment or services for the physically challenged will be posted in January 2019.
Child CareThe AACR will provide professional
child-care services through KiddieCorp for infants and children ages 6
months to 12 years during the Annual Meeting. As a convenience for
registrants, the AACR subsidizes the cost of this service, which is
$12 per hour for each child (a two-hour minimum is required). Snacks
and beverages are included in the fee, but meals must be provided by
parents. Medication (including sunscreen) will NOT be administered by
KiddieCorp. To ensure a safe and fun-filled environment, any child who
is ill will not be admitted to the children’s program. The advance registration deadline is February 28, 2019. Register early, as availability is limited and handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Onsite registration
will be permitted as space allows. Special arrangements may also be made for infants
under 6 months old by contacting Leah Burton.
Nursing Mothers SuiteAnnual Meeting attendees who are also nursing mothers will find the Nursing Mothers Suite to be a private, comfortable, and secure environment in which to nourish and nurture their babies. AACR-Women in Cancer Research is pleased to sponsor this important service.
