The AACR organizes a variety of outstanding conferences, meetings, and workshops each year to advance our understanding of cancer and to facilitate the exchange of the most cutting-edge research in the field. The AACR Annual Meeting highlights the best cancer science and medicine from institutions all over the world. Attendees are invited to stretch their boundaries, form collaborations, attend sessions outside their areas of expertise, and learn how to apply exciting new concepts, tools, and techniques to their own research.

AACR Special Conferences present unique opportunities to interact with the world’s leading experts and discuss the latest findings in rapidly developing areas of cancer research. These popular conferences are relatively small (150-400 attendees) to allow ample time for discussion and networking.

The AACR’s educational workshops provide early-career investigators with opportunities to develop skills in clinical trial design, molecular biology, integrative molecular epidemiology, translational research, and related fields. Many programs supplement the educational aspects with mentoring, networking, and career development opportunities. Coupled with a broad array of Member Council (AMC) programs/initiatives, these programs prepare younger researchers for the next vital steps in their careers.

The AACR also holds a variety of meetings on a recurring basis, including such collaborative programs as the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, the Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics Conference, the International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference, and the Biennial Meeting on Advances in Malignant Lymphoma.
