Abstracts are no longer being accepted for this conference. The extended abstract submission deadline was Monday, August 3, 2020. All abstracts submitted by the August 3 deadline will be considered for poster presentation. Additionally, oral presentations of highly rated abstracts will be integrated within thematic sessions.


Only those abstracts that have been reviewed and selected by the Conference Program Committee may be presented. Accepted abstracts will be presented as e-presentations (slide presentations with accompanying audio) for the virtual Poster Session. Details on the length and format of the presentations will be provided to individuals noted as ABSTRACT PRESENTERS of accepted abstracts.

If you submitted an abstract to the terminated live event, it will automatically be reviewed and considered for e-presentation at the Conference.


All individuals listed as ABSTRACT PRESENTERS will be notified of acceptance or rejection by email in late August. Notices and instructions will be sent to the email address provided at the time of abstract submission. If an abstract is not selected for presentation, the presenter may request a full refund of the registration fee by contacting the AACR Meetings Department at [email protected].


Abstracts selected to be presented at this virtual conference will be available as a .pdf file to conference registrants at the start of the virtual conference. Accepted abstracts must remain confidential until that time. Every effort will be made to reproduce the content of the abstracts as submitted, except in certain circumstances where changes may be made to comply with AACR style. Accepted abstracts will also be published as an online-only Proceedings supplement to an AACR journal after the completion of the conference. 


PRESENTERS of accepted abstracts are required to register for the conference at the corresponding member or nonmember rate. If an abstract is not accepted for presentation at the conference, the presenter may request a full refund of the registration fee. For additional information, please visit the registration webpage


Once an abstract has been submitted, it may be withdrawn only by written request from the ABSTRACT PRESENTER. The request may be emailed to [email protected] and must be received at least 30 days prior to the start of the conference.
