Promising New Research at the 2016 AACR Annual Meeting

Friday, April 15, 2016

Thousands of oncology experts from around the world will gather in New Orleans from April 16 - 20 for the American Association for Cancer Research 2016 Annual Meeting. This year’s theme, “Delivering Cures Through Cancer Science,” reinforces the inextricable link between research and advances in patient care. Featuring new research and important discoveries — many led by Memorial Sloan Kettering researchers — the meeting will highlight the most promising findings over the last year as well as a vision for the future of the cancer “moonshot.”

MSK experts will be available to comment on their research and provide expert comment on the work highlighted in the press program including immunotherapy and CAR T cells, exercise oncology, precision medicine and more.
