Description

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is the first and largest cancer research organization in the world. The Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization 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 understand, prevent, diagnose, treat, and​ cure cancer by promoting research, education, communication, and collaboration. To that end, the AACR focuses on every facet of high-quality, innovative cancer research. 

The organization's reputation for scientific breadth and excellence attracts the premier researchers in the field, helping to make the AACR the authoritative source of information about advances in the causes, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the more than 200 diseases we call cancer.
