The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) will host its 114th Annual Meeting from April 14-19, 2023, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Media interested in registering for the meeting will have the option to register for in-person or virtual attendance.

The AACR Annual Meeting offers scientists, clinicians, survivors, patients, and advocates an outstanding opportunity to share the latest advances in cancer science and medicine.

Following this year’s theme, “Advancing the Frontiers of Cancer Science and Medicine,” presentations at the meeting will span the entire field of cancer research, highlighting basic, translational, and clinical research on important topics such as cancer health disparities, precision medicine, artificial intelligence, cancer vaccines, liquid biopsy, and more. The meeting will feature distinguished speakers from around the world, hundreds of invited talks, and more than 6,000 proffered papers. You can view the preliminary AACR Annual Meeting 2023 program online.
