What: The 10th AACR International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research will bring together scientists to share the latest findings in genetics, chemoprevention and lifestyle choices that may prevent cancer. As treatment continues to be a challenge for many forms of cancer, researchers are turning to ways that cancer can be prevented.
The conference, scheduled for Oct. 22-25, 2011, in Boston, will feature hundreds of abstracts and dozens of selected presentations, including:
- Lifetime weight gain and the risk of pancreatic and endometrial cancer;
