Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer in men and the second most common cancer in women worldwide, and it remains the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. This AACR Virtual Special Conference on Colorectal Cancer will be dedicated to connecting basic, translational, and clinical research discoveries across disciplines to speed the progress toward improved outcomes and decreased incidences in CRC. The conference cochairs have developed a program featuring the latest research from established young and “rising star” CRC investigators that will appeal to laboratory scientists as well as clinical oncologists.
