AACR Cancels Its 2003 Annual Meeting in Toronto

The AACR has decided, with much regret, to cancel its Annual Meeting, scheduled for April 5-9, 2003, in Toronto, Canada, as a result of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak.

We believe this is the most prudent course of action at this time. The decision reflects the growing concern of many -- particularly those with clinical care responsibilities -- that we must minimize the risk of spreading SARS, especially for those whose immune system is already compromised from their fight with cancer.

More than 12,000 cancer researchers - conducting the world's most important basic, translational, clinical, and epidemiological studies - were pre-registered to attend this meeting, and 16,000 attendees were expected in Toronto.

We wish to thank Dr. Sara Courtneidge, Program Chairperson, and all of members of the Program Committee for the outstanding program. We would also like to express our profound appreciation to the speakers for agreeing to participate in this meeting, and to AACR members and registrants for their continued support and understanding.

Please check the AACR Website and e-mail blasts in the following days for information about refunds and other information.

We will keep all interested organizations and parties informed as to the date of the rescheduled 2003 AACR Annual Meeting.

Margaret Foti, Ph.D., CEO
