AACR Annual Meeting 2020 – Virtual meeting on Selected Presentations; Annual meeting to be rescheduled
April 24 - April 29
The AACR is planning to reschedule the Annual Meeting for late August while at the same time closely monitoring the developments surrounding COVID-19. An official announcement of the rescheduled meeting will be made in the near future. In an effort to support the cancer research community during this difficult time, the AACR are taking several steps to disseminate innovative cancer science and medicine more widely:
- AACR Virtual Annual Meeting 2020: Selected Presentations. The AACR received more than 225 clinical trials for presentation at the Annual Meeting. Due to the time-sensitive nature of these trials—many of which are practice-changing—the AACR are making them available to the community at the time of the original April meeting. Therefore, as per our previous announcement, the AACR will host a slate of selected sessions online featuring these cutting-edge data.This Virtual Annual Meeting will be held on April 27 and 28, 2020, and will include more than 30 oral presentations in several clinical trial plenary sessions along with commentaries from expert discussants, as well as clinical trial poster sessions consisting of short videos providing the authors’ perspectives. The Virtual Meeting will feature a New Drugs on the Horizon session as well as nine minisymposia that will showcase a broad sample of basic and translational science. Topics will include genomics, tumor microenvironment, novel targets, drug discovery, therapeutics, immunotherapy, biomarkers, and cancer prevention. A special minisymposium titled “Advancing Cancer Research Through an International Cancer Registry” will feature use cases of data available through AACR Project GENIE.
This Virtual Meeting will be available free to everyone, although attendees will be asked to register to participate. The session and presentation titles for the Virtual Meeting, as well as a link to the registration site, will be posted to the AACR website by Monday, April 13.
