From funding research grants to minimizing the barriers to clinical trials, the decisions made in Washington, D.C., directly influence the rate of progress in the war against cancer. Issues regarding health and science are becoming increasingly complex, and competition for limited resources is steadily increasing. These times require that cancer researchers become more actively involved in the policy-making process and take time to educate the public about the exciting progress occurring in the fight against cancer.

The AACR’s principal means for devising and implementing strategies to influence funding and important biomedical research-related public policy issues through The Science Policy and Government Affairs Committee and its subcommittees:
