The AACR is excited to announce a Special Conference focused on pediatric blood-based cancers and associated disorders categorized as pediatric hematological malignancies. This conference will span the spectrum of relevant pediatric cancer science and medicine, from basic science discoveries to their translation in the clinic and will cover those scientific areas that cut across all blood cancers such as genomics, cancer metabolism, as well as translational and clinical topics such as genetic predispositions, functional therapeutics, targetable signaling pathways, immunotherapy, and early clinical trials. The conference will also explore topics that highlight the racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in access to care and outcome of leukemia and lymphoma treatment in children.

This conference offers a unique opportunity for a lively discussion, in a small meeting setting, of the challenges in the field among basic, translational, and clinical researchers and for potential collaborations among national and international investigators in the field.

The Cochairs for this Special Conference are world-renowned experts in the diverse areas of this field. Under their leadership, the meeting will provide an outstanding forum for the presentation of today’s most exciting developments in the research and treatment of pediatric hematological malignancies.
