Although the AACR Special Conferences Series has presented more than 200 programs since 1988, this Special Conference will be unique as it is the first program designed to address traditional cancer research topics such as trial design, diagnostics, and drug development; technology topics such as real-time patient monitoring, EHRs, and machine learning; and regulatory and financial considerations in the era of precision medicine.

In order to cover this wide array of topics over the four-day program, the Cochairs have identified a roster of speakers featuring leaders from academia, government, and the biotech, pharma, technology, finance, and insurance sectors, including several individuals who will be new to the AACR. Make plans to join us in San Diego from January 9-12, 2020 for this exciting new program.
