The Annual Meeting Program Committee, Education Committee, and Clinical Trials Committee have developed an exciting program that examines all aspects of cancer development and factors that influence each individual patient’s experience.
The world’s largest meeting dedicated to cancer research hits the road for the first time in two years after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of in-person gatherings in 2020 and 2021. Virtual attendance is also an option this year.
Program Committee Chair Marcia R. Cruz-Correa, MD, PhD, previews the Annual Meeting scientific program, which covers the most important advances and hottest topics in cancer research.
Among the themes and topics expected to garner a lot of attention this year are trials looking at cellular therapies, novel immunotherapeutics, and molecularly targeted therapy drugs, according to Timothy A. Yap, MD, PhD, and Julie R. Brahmer, MD, MSc.
The Annual Meeting program includes several sessions devoted to research looking at disparities in cancer, including the impact that biology, race, ethnicity, gender, economic status, and environment can have on different cancers and different populations.
Attendees in New Orleans will have access to all meeting events, including several onsite networking events and hubs. Both virtual and in-person attendees will have access to watch/view session recordings on the virtual meeting platform for three months after the meeting.
Vaccination and mask policies are based on guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and may be updated if CDC recommendations change.
