Abstracts are no longer being accepted for this conference. The abstract submission deadline was Friday, August 14, 2020. All abstracts submitted by the August 14 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 Chairs may be presented. Details on the format of the presentations will be provided in future communications to individuals noted as ABSTRACT PRESENTERS of accepted abstracts. 


All individuals listed as ABSTRACT PRESENTERS will be notified of acceptance or rejection by email in mid-September.

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.
