AACR to host Seventh Annual International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research
Date:11/11/2008

"This meeting has become a major venue for presenting cutting-edge research in basic, clinical, epidemiologic and behavioral science," said meeting chair Steven M. Dubinett, M.D., director of the Lung Cancer Research Program at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. "As the only comprehensive conference on cancer prevention in the world, it continues to foster important transdisciplinary interactions that are vital to making critical discoveries."

The 2008 program will cover a wide variety of cancer prevention topics and will specifically highlight some of the latest developments in the tumor microenvironment, international prevention mechanisms, integrative prevention and targeted prevention and treatment.

This international conference will bring together scientists and other professionals, working in a variety of disciplines, to discuss the latest findings in the field and to stimulate the development of new research in cancer prevention.

The AACR will host six press briefings for reporters during the conference that will include breaking news:

  • A groundbreaking scientific partnership with the Avon/Love Army of Women that will recruit one million healthy women for clinical trials.
  • How DNA methylation may explain why some smokers get lung cancer while others do not.
  • Why family history may affect the risk of breast cancer associated with BRCA1/BRCA2 genetic mutations.
  • How canola oil affects a person's risk for cancer.
  • New data on alcohol and its effect on esophageal cancer.

This popular Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research conference promotes public, academic, government and industry awareness of the vital importance of cancer prevention science in reducing cancer incidence and mortality. It catalyzes coordinated, focused research that promises to accelerate cancer prevention. The exciting ideas presented at this conference will benefit the work of investigators in every prevention subspecialty and at every level of career development.
