National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian cancer is rare and often goes undetected until it’s reached advanced stages. It may not cause early signs or symptoms, and it is difficult to screen for the disease, according to the National Cancer Institute. The AACR virtual Special Conference: Ovarian Cancer (October 5 – 7, 2023) will mark the AACR’s sixth Biennial Special Conference on Ovarian Cancer and will highlight the important need in ovarian cancer research and treatment with sessions focusing on epidemiology and prevention, immunology, tumor microenvironment, DNA damage, replication stress, genetics, and cancer evolution. As an exclusive-member benefit, AACR members receive substantially reduced registration rates for Special Conferences.
