It is our pleasure to announce the
New Horizons in Cancer Research Conference: Harnessing Breakthroughs – Targeting Cures, to be held Oct. 9-12, 2014, in Shanghai, China. This historic event will highlight the latest and most exciting discoveries in major areas of cancer research, and will provide a unique opportunity for investigators from all over the world to meet, network, and forge new scientific interactions. The meeting will serve as a dynamic platform for the advancement of cancer science and medicine, and for the establishment of new collaborations on an international scale. The multidisciplinary program covers the entire cancer research spectrum – from basic, to translational, to clinical – drawing on the latest findings presented at the 105th Annual Meeting of the AACR held in San Diego, April 5-9, 2014. The conference will feature talks from an outstanding roster of international speakers and local experts.
This conference is the first event organized by the AACR International Office in Shanghai. In April, the AACR was pleased to announce the opening of this first satellite office outside the U.S., which will help better serve the needs of scientists and clinicians in China, and across the Asia Pacific region. The AACR has established AACR International to stimulate innovative global collaborations by fostering the exchange of information on the latest research developments between laboratory and clinical researchers around the world.
