The mission of the AACR Cancer Prevention Working Group is to spotlight and strengthen awareness of cancer prevention as an essential mechanism in cancer control and to establish cancer prevention as a global priority supported by improved funding, the very latest technologies and best educational strategies.

The AACR Cancer Prevention Working Group will provide a forum for communication and collaboration among basic, translational, and clinical scientists, physicians, nurses, as well as practicing medical, surgical, and oncologists in academia, industry, and government.

The group will work to assist in facilitating basic, translational and clinical trans-disciplinary research aimed at promoting the expansion and understanding of cancer prevention science.
