Insights from the American Association for Cancer Research
Indeed, Joe Biden’s presence and talk added so much excitement to the conference this year, but it really was all about the science during the AACR 2016 meeting! Watch the Webcast of the Vice President’s remarks and contribute to the discussion related to the National Cancer Moonshot Initiative.
The AACR conference was hosted by the gracious city of New Orleans in April. The theme this year was “Delivering Cures Through Cancer Science” and this theme was reinforced throughout the conference by the latest discoveries presented in every area of cancer research. Alongside all of the fascinating discussion, the exhibitors featured cutting edge products. The Elsevier booth buzzed with excitement, animated discussions and great partnerships as the delegates browsed the books and journals on display! We also held a book-a-day giveaway and our Cell Press colleagues held several “meet the editor” sessions.
Additionally, a number of esteemed authors stopped by booth to see their work in print!
