The AACR Annual Meeting 2015 Kicks Off Tomorrow, April 18

Tomorrow, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2015 will get underway in Philadelphia. It is anticipated that there will be more than 18,500 attendees from around the world flocking to what is the premier cancer research meeting of the year.

The meeting will showcase the latest, most exciting discoveries across the breadth of cancer research. With nearly 6,000 proffered papers being presented in oral and poster sessions and more than 700 invited speakers from around the world reporting their latest data, the program will inspire new avenues of research and help accelerate the pace at which cancer discoveries are brought to patients.

In these videos, the two people who led the development of the program for this year’s annual meeting—AACR President Carlos L. Arteaga, MD, the Donna S. Hall chair in breast cancer research and director of the Center for Cancer Targeted Therapies at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and the chair of the AACR Annual Meeting 2015 program committee, Lewis C. Cantley, PhD, director of the Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York—talk about what attendees can expect to learn at the AACR Annual Meeting 2015 and what makes the meeting a must-attend event for everyone in the cancer community.
