The IWMF’s exciting new alliance with the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) will make a difference by helping the IWMF raise awareness and by facilitating collaboration with other patient advocacy organizations.
Founded in 1907 by a small group of physicians and scientists, the AACR is the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world focused on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research. Its mission is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration. AACR actively publishes highly ranked peer-reviewed journals, convenes topical scientific conferences, and offers workshops, fellowships and grants to young investigators. AACR also publishes Cancer Today, a quarterly publication focusing on the latest advances in cancer research, personal stories of hope and general survivorship topics.
