The Association for International Cancer Research is the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world focused on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research. It was founded on 1979, Its reputation for scientific breadth and excellence attract the premier researchers in the field. The programs and services of the AICR foster the exchange of knowledge and new ideas among scientists dedicated to cancer research, provide training opportunities for the next generation of cancer researchers, and increase public understanding of cancer.
The Association for International Cancer Research mainly focuses to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration. Through its programs and services, the AACR fosters research in cancer and related biomedical science; accelerates the dissemination of new research findings among scientists and others dedicated to the conquest of cancer; promotes science education and training; and advances the understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world. Cancer is not a single disease, but more than 200. In the U.S. and around the world, thousands of men and women in laboratories and clinics, universities, medical centers, government, and industry are working not only to overcome this affliction that claims half a million American lives each year, but also to prevent it. The AICR is the authoritative source of information about advances in the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer. By accelerating the growth and spread of new knowledge about cancer, the AICR is on the front lines of the quest for prevention and cure. Scientists may compete to be the first to make a world-changing discovery, but they are linked together by an unflinching commitment to better understand cancer and how we can live with it. For this reason they share their discoveries. And they need to because cancer is not one disease – it’s more than 200. All different, unique diseases, which require different approaches for treatment. Treatments that work for some cancers don’t work for others and sometimes those treatments simply stop working.
This worldwide research will enhance our understanding of cancer and help then to find and develop better, more effective treatments. Treatments personalised to your unique needs. Treatments you, your family or your family’s family may rely on in the future. AICR funds research that explores the effects of food, nutrition, physical activity and body weight on the development, treatment and survival of cancer. For over three decades, they have dedicated themselves for better understanding how weight, activity, and diet plays a role in cancer risk. This knowledge has revolutionized the understanding of cancer prevention. It is now transforming the medical and scientific community’s approach to cancer treatment and survival.Read More»
