AACR Officers and Directors
The AACR thanks its officers and members of the board of directors for their vision, their wisdom, and their tireless efforts on behalf of the cancer research community.
AACR Foundation Officers and Trustees
World-class scientists work with leaders in finance, law, healthcare, and nonprofit management to guide the fundraising and funding activities of the AACR Foundation. Their expert stewardship ensures that 88 cents of every dollar raised by the foundation goes to support lifesaving cancer science.
Some committees define the research agenda for the cancer community, while others guide the AACR's programs and initiatives in support of that agenda. The AACR is grateful to the committee chairpersons and members who volunteer their time and talent in support of its mission.
Task Force Chairpersons
The AACR shapes the landscape of cancer research through its scientific task forces, convening experts from multiple disciplines to define, evaluate, and foster emerging areas of inquiry. Task forces focus attention and resources on these promising areas, generating a critical mass of interest and discovery to move the field forward.
Scientific Working Group Chairpersons
When a task force generates a critical mass of interest in an emerging area of research, the AACR promotes further progress in that area by forming scientific working groups. These member groups create communities of interest that build working relationships and foster collaboration.
