Fellows of the AACR Academy, Class of 2022

Pioneering cancer researchers and physician-scientists elected to the AACR Academy.

Thirty-three distinguished scientists whose groundbreaking contributions have propelled progress against cancer have been elected as Fellows of the AACR Academy. 

Since its founding in 1907, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and its members have been the driving force behind the scientific advances against the collection of devastating diseases we call cancer.

The 2022 Class of the AACR Academy includes pioneering researchers and physician-scientists whose contributions span the continuum of cancer science and medicine. This year’s Fellows join 256 existing members who collectively serve as a global brain trust in cancer research and care. 

The Fellows of the AACR Academy provide ongoing advice and counsel to the AACR leadership on significant and timely scientific topics. Together, the Fellows help advance the mission of the AACR to prevent and cure all forms of cancer. 

“The 2022 class consists of luminaries who span the gamut of scientific disciplines,” said Margaret Foti, PhD, MD (hc), chief executive officer of the AACR. “These individuals from across the globe have all made quintessential contributions to cancer research and collectively, their work has significantly accelerated the pace of progress against cancer.”

Fellows are nominated and elected through a multi-step peer review process conducted by existing Fellows of the AACR Academy. The process involves a rigorous assessment of each candidate’s scientific accomplishments in cancer research and cancer-related sciences. Only individuals whose work has had a significant and enduring impact on cancer research are considered for induction into the AACR Academy. 

The AACR Academy includes 56 Nobel laureates.
