AACR Annual Meeting

Come to Chicago’s McCormick Place for the AACR Annual Meeting April 14-18, and stay at the nearby and affordable LaQuinta Inn & Suites in historic Hyde Park.

The theme of this year’s AACR Annual Meeting is Driving Innovative Cancer Science to Patient Care. Presentations at the Annual Meeting will cover the latest basic, translational, clinical, and prevention-focused research in the field, including important areas such as early detection, cancer interception, and survivorship in all populations. We will feature new sessions on cancer health disparities that have been inspired by one of the important AACR presidential initiatives. We will also be reprising a popular new feature from Annual Meeting 2017, “Unsolved Mysteries,” featuring provocative questions and their in-depth discussion by speakers and members of the audience.

Scientists are now harnessing the power of mathematics, engineering, and artificial intelligence to diagnose cancer at an earlier stage. They are also concentrating their efforts on cancer in minorities and the medically underserved, working to eliminate the persistent disparities in cancer outcomes. All of these developments are reflected in the theme for the upcoming Annual Meeting: “Driving Innovative Cancer Science to Patient Care.” As we wind down our 110th Anniversary Year, this theme is a powerful reminder that at the heart of every scientific advance is a patient in urgent need of a cure.
