The inaugural AACR Infection and Cancer Conference will take place in Hong Kong and is part of a new AACR global initiative focusing attention on pathogen-related cancers, some of the most prevalent cancers in many parts of the world. In coming years, the conference will be held in different regions of the world, focusing on one or more infectious agents and cancers prevalent in that part of the world. The focus for the 2020 conference in Hong Kong will be on cancers prevalent in Asia that are related to infection with Hepatitis B virus, human papilloma virus, Epstein-Barr virus, and H. pylori.
