American Association for Cancer Research (ACCR)

AACR Mission

The mission of the American Association for Cancer Research is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, collaboration, funding, and advocacy. Through its programs and services, the AACR fosters research in cancer and related biomedical science; accelerates the dissemination of new research findings among scientists and others dedicated to the conquest of cancer; promotes science education and training; and advances the understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world.

How will the cures for cancer be found?

The answer is research. Cancer is not a single disease, but more than 200. In the U.S. and around the world, thousands of men and women in laboratories and clinics, universities, medical centers, government, and industry are working not only to overcome this affliction that claims half a million American lives each year, but also to prevent it.

How does the AACR promote cancer research?

The AACR is the authoritative source of information about advances in the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer. By accelerating the growth and spread of new knowledge about cancer, the AACR is on the front lines of the quest for prevention and cure.
