Fellows of the AACR Academy

The AACR Academy was established in 2013 to honor distinguished scientists whose major scientific contributions have propelled significant innovation and progress against cancer. Those elected, known as Fellows of the AACR Academy, constitute a global brain trust of individuals who are instrumental in advancing the mission of the AACR to prevent and cure all cancers through research, education, communication, collaboration, science policy and advocacy, and funding for cancer research.

The AACR Academy is currently led by Dr. Charles L. Sawyers (2021-2023 AACR Academy President) and a Steering Committee of additional Fellows who serve as the collective voice for all Fellows of the AACR Academy, while providing ongoing advice and counsel to the AACR leadership on timely and significant scientific and policy topics as well as other matters of importance to the cancer field.

The next elected class of prestigious Fellows of the AACR Academy will be formally recognized in conjunction with the AACR Annual Meeting 2022 Opening Ceremony, scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 10.
