The 102nd American Association For Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting will be held from Saturday, April 2 through Wednesday, April 6, 2011, at the Orange County Convention Center located in Orlando, Florida. Select ovarian cancer meeting presentations and abstracts are now available online.
Once again, the AACR will host and organize an exciting program on the best and latest in cancer research, in which a large cross section of the cancer research community will participate, to advance the cause of treating and preventing cancer. The meeting program not only reflects the AACR’s strengths in basic, translational, and clinical research, but also emphasizes the productive interfaces emerging between these once-separated disciplines. The program also captures the advances on all of these fronts, with a range of speakers and participants who are leaders in research: cancer mechanisms, systems approaches to cancer biology, diagnostics and therapeutics, translation of advances to the clinic, and cutting-edge science in the prevention and early interception of cancer.
In advance of the actual meeting, you can review select ovarian cancer meeting and poster presentations that relate to basic, clinical, epidemiological, and translational research.

About the American Association For Cancer Research
The mission of the American Association for Cancer Research is to prevent and cure cancer. 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 AACR is the world’s oldest and largest professional organization dedicated to advancing cancer research. The membership includes 33,000 basic, translational and clinical researchers; health care professionals; and cancer survivors and advocates in the United States and more than 90 other countries.
The AACR marshals the full spectrum of expertise from the cancer community to accelerate progress in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer through high-quality scientific and educational programs. It funds innovative, meritorious research grants, research fellowships and career development awards. The AACR Annual Meeting attracts more than 18,000 participants who share the latest discoveries and developments in the field. Special conferences throughout the year present novel data across a wide variety of topics in cancer research, treatment and patient care. Including Cancer Discovery, the AACR publishes seven major peer-reviewed journals: Cancer Research; Clinical Cancer Research; Molecular Cancer Therapeutics; Molecular Cancer Research; Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention; and Cancer Prevention Research. AACR journals represented 20 percent of the market share of total citations in 2009. The AACR also publishes CR, a magazine for cancer survivors and their families, patient advocates, physicians and scientists.
