Cancer Prevention, Early Detection, and Interception Committee
The AACR Cancer Prevention, Early Detection, and Interception Committee helps to coordinate the long-term prevention agenda of the AACR. The committee is charged with strengthening existing AACR programs, publications, and other efforts related to cancer prevention research. The group considers new ways to engage cancer prevention researchers from all sub-specialties. The committee also serves to help develop initiatives to promote global cancer prevention, increase national awareness, and educate the lay public about cancer prevention.
The Cancer Prevention, Early Detection, and Interception Committee most recently coordinated a summit titled "Shaping the Future of Cancer Prevention: A Roadmap for Integrative Cancer Science and Public Health." At this summit, AACR convened a diverse array of 70 experts from a wide range of advocacy organizations, academic institutions, government agencies, and pharmaceutical companies to discuss the current status, challenges, and future areas of promise that exist in their respective fields of cancer prevention sciences.
