More than 134,400 new cases of colorectal cancer are projected to be diagnosed in the United States in 2016. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer and the third leading cause of death due to cancer in both men and women in the United States.  Despite these statistics, incidence and mortality rates have been declining thanks to knowledge of risk factors, prevention, and early detection.

This AACR Special Conference on Colorectal Cancer: From Initiation to Outcomes will provide a comprehensive overview beginning at tumor initiation and continuing through patient outcomes and survivorship.
