The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is the first and largest scientific organization in the world focused on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research. The AACR was founded in 1907 by a group of 11 physicians and scientists interested in research “to further the investigation and spread the knowledge of cancer.”
The mission of the AACR is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration. To that end, the AACR supports the entire continuum of cancer research from fundamental science to clinical and translational research.
Throughout our history, the AACR and its members – now numbering more than 37,000 researchers, physician-scientists, patient advocates, survivors and others in 108 countries worldwide – have been at the forefront of every major advance in cancer treatment and prevention.
