Fellows of the AACR Academy, Class of 2024

Pioneering researchers and physician-scientists elected as Fellows of the AACR Academy in 2024.

Thirty eminent scientists whose pioneering discoveries have accelerated progress in cancer science and medicine have been elected as Fellows of the AACR Academy. With trailblazing contributions spanning the gamut of cancer and related fields, the newly elected Fellows have all made significant and enduring impacts on cancer research and medicine. 

“The 2024 Class of Fellows includes leaders from many scientific disciplines and areas of study who have collectively contributed to the improvement of the understanding and treatment of cancer,” said AACR Chief Executive Officer Margaret Foti, PhD, MD (hc). “These scientific pioneers from around the globe have fundamentally shaped cancer research through their respective scientific accomplishments.”

The AACR Academy features a diverse group of scientists that now includes 57 Nobel Laureates. Most recently, Carolyn R. Bertozzi, PhD, FAACR, of Stanford University earned the 2022 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her groundbreaking contributions to the development of “click chemistry” through the concept of bioorthogonal chemistry.

All Fellows of the AACR Academy serve as a global brain trust that help the AACR identify scientific priorities intended to drive significant and sustained progress against cancer. Additionally, AACR Fellows play a critical role in mentoring the next generation of cancer scientists and educating the public as to the vital importance of cancer science and medicine.

“We are thrilled and honored to have them join our 312 existing AACR Fellows,” Dr. Foti added, “and look forward to celebrating their enormous scientific achievements at our upcoming Annual Meeting in April.”
