The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is a leading nonprofit in cancer research, education, communication, and collaboration.
AACR partnered with CRI in 2013 to establish and promote their jointly produced academic journal, Cancer Immunology Research.
In 2015, AACR and CRI combined forces along with two European cancer immunotherapy nonprofits to establish the CRI-CIMT-EATI-AACR International Cancer Immunotherapy Conference, one of the largest and most comprehensive meetings to cover the latest breaking research in the field.
CRI and AACR also annually present the AACR-CRI Lloyd J. Old Award in Cancer Immunology, which recognizes an active scientist whose outstanding and innovative research in cancer immunology has had a far-reaching impact on the cancer field. In addition, AACR also serves as the scientific partner and provides grants administration to the Stand Up to Cancer-Cancer Research Institute Cancer Immunology Translational Research Dream Team.
