The mission of the American Association for Cancer Research is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration. Through its programs and services, the AACR fosters research in cancer and related biomedical science; accelerates the dissemination of new research findings among scientists and others dedicated to the conquest of cancer; promotes science education and training; and advances the understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world.
The EACR and AACR have worked together to organise a succession of great international conferences in collaboration with different national cancer societies. This includes:
Tumor Microenvironment (Lisbon, Portugal, 02-04 March 2020) with the Associação Portuguesa de Investigação em Cancro (ASPIC)
The Cutting Edge of Contemporary Cancer Research (Jerusalem, Israel, 9-11 October 2018) with the Israeli Society for Cancer Research (ISCR)
Two successful special conferences with the Società Italiana di Cancerologia (Italian Cancer Society) in Florence, Italy in 2015, 2017 and 2023
The EACR is grateful for the continued support of its Industry Partners:
