Through its programs and services, the AACR fosters cancer research 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 causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment throughout the world. The Foundation funds programs deemed by the AACR to be of the highest priority and impact in achieving this shared mission.

These programs provide opportunities for clinical researchers with some career experience to sharpen their skills and expand their expertise. Fellowships and Career Development Awards - Programs supporting the academic research of postdoctoral and clinical fellows and junior faculty. Program seeks to increase the funds available to researchers in a climate of dwindling governmental resources. Conference Series - A series of scientific meetings and workshops presenting unique opportunities to interact with the world's leading experts and discuss the latest findings in rapidly developing areas of cancer research. The formal and informal discussions at these conferences lead to new collaborations among investigators around the world and major advances in knowledge.

Reviews for Aacr Foundation For The Prevention And Cure Of Cancer
As a scientist, AACR is essential for the maturation of my professional career. Through grant funding, programming, conferences, workshops, and publications, AACR has established itself as the premier non-profit organization committed to aiding in the fight against cancer. In addition, AACR is a tremendous proponent of science policy, advocacy, and education-based initiatives both domestically and internationally. We need more awareness of AACR as well as their Stand Up 2 Cancer partnership!! If you aren't familiar with AACR, I would strongly suggest you look into the organization, you will not be dissapointed.
