AACR on Campus Brazil

AACR on Campus – Defeating Cancer through Global Education and Training – is a cooperative outreach program that brings to early career professionals locally relevant perspectives on cancer research trends and innovations at academic and cancer research institutions worldwide. It also provides opportunities for skills training in manuscript writing, scientific communication, and network/career development.   

AACR on Campus partnered with The Institute of Cancer of São Paulo and Universidade de São Paulo (USP) to host the 2024 AACR on Campus in Brazil in São Paulo and Ribeirão Preto.

AACRoC form and content is specifically formulated for the early career Brazilian cancer research and clinical communities. It is organized across three segments. Segment 1 “From Bench to Bedside” – concepts, theory, frameworks, tools, methods, and models of cancer immunology research; Segment 2 “Best Practices in Collaborative Clinical Trial Design” – clinical trial and investigation research and its role in prevention, early detection, and patient care; and Segment 3 “Collaboration, Scientific Communication and Grant Writing” – preparing and publishing high quality manuscripts, improving scientific communication, and developing career paths. 

The three events took place during the week of February 19, 2024, and featured talks from distinguished speakers followed by a panel discussion.
