Scientific Meetings

The AACR marshals the full spectrum of expertise of the cancer community to accelerate progress in the prevention, biology, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer by annually convening more than 30 conferences and educational workshops.

Details for select upcoming meetings are below:

AACR Conference on the science of cancer health disparities

This conference advances the understanding of, and ultimately helps to eliminate, the disparities that represent a major public health problem. Reflecting this transdisciplinary field, professionals from academia, industry, government, and the community are brought together to promote the exchange of novel ideas, discuss the latest findings in the field, and stimulate the development of new research on cancer health disparities.

The AACR will host the 17th annual conference in Los Angeles from September 21-24, 2024.


San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium

The mission of the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) is to produce a unique and comprehensive scientific meeting that encompasses the full spectrum of breast cancer research, facilitating the rapid translation of new knowledge into better care for patients with breast cancer. UT Health at San Antonio and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) sponsor the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. This collaboration utilizes the clinical strengths of UT Health San Antonio and the AACR’s scientific prestige in basic, translational, and clinical cancer research to expedite the delivery of the latest scientific advances to the clinic.

The 2024 symposium will be held December 10-14, 2024


AACR Annual Meeting

The AACR Annual Meeting program covers the latest discoveries across the spectrum of cancer research—from population science and prevention; to cancer biology, translational, and clinical studies; to survivorship and advocacy—and highlights the work of the best minds in research and medicine from institutions all over the world.

The AACR will host the AACR Annual Meeting 2025 in Chicago from April 25-30, 2025.
