AACR Annual Meeting 2016

​NEW IN 2016

Satellite Educational Symposia
Two Satellite Educational Symposia will be held in conjunction with the AACR Annual Meeting. These CME-accredited events are supported by parties other than AACR and are not part of the official program of the AACR Annual Meeting. Symposia are evaluated by the Satellite Educational Symposia Committee to ensure that the educational content will enhance that provided by the official AACR scientific program. There is no cost to attend these sessions, but space is limited—register today! Topics this year are New Directions in Cancer Immunotherapy: A Cross-Tumor Exploration of Checkpoint Blockade, and Immuno-Oncology Advances in Melanoma and Beyond: Insights for Research and the Clinic. To learn more and register, visit the Satellite Educational Symposia page.

The Greatest Minds in Cancer Science Come Together to Inspire and Educate the Public
At the 2016 Annual Meeting, the AACR is pleased to host a dynamic day of conversation and education about cancer and cancer research for patients, survivors, and the general public. The AACR plays a critical role in increasing the public’s understanding about research and advances in cancer science. This public forum will bring together some of the world’s most esteemed cancer physicians and scientists, leaders from national cancer organizations, survivor groups, and national and local support. Participants will hear about the latest in cancer science, interact with cancer experts, and obtain helpful information and resources for patients, survivors, and their families.

100th Anniversary of Publishing
2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the AACR journal publishing program, as well as the 75th anniversary of the publication of our journal Cancer Research, which is the most frequently cited journal in the field. Please look for special exhibits and events at the Annual Meeting to celebrate this major milestone!
