AACR Conference 2011 Reports

The 102nd Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research occurred in Orlando this year from April 2-5. Over 17,000 researchers from the United States and around the world attended this conference, which focuses on the basic science of cancer. ACKC President, Jay Bitkower, attended the meeting as part of AACR’s Scientist-Survivor Program where cancer advocates attend special lectures, work on projects in a team format, and are paired with cancer researchers to gain insight into the disease, etc. As part of the program, each participant presents a poster at a General Poster Session. Following, is the poster presented by Jay at the conference plus his summary of some of the sessions, including sessions intended specifically to the Scientist-Survivor Program and other general presentations, that are of interest to the kidney cancer community.
