This year, the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and Cancer Research UK are holding a new annual conference on prevention research, June 25-27, in Boston.  

The event will bring together researchers from discovery biology through translational and behavioural science to population and implementation research to create a thriving multidisciplinary cancer prevention research community, spark new collaborations and ideas, and advance cancer prevention. 

Our goal is to help create a new-look cancer prevention research community, and to showcase research to better understand cancer aetiology, risk factors, intervention development and implementation, and health inequalities in cancer prevention. The conference will be built on a philosophy of using advances in mechanistic understanding to inform more effective ways of preventing cancer.  

Our conference co-chairs John Burn (Newcastle University), Tim Rebbeck (Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center) and Thea Tlsty (University of California, San Francisco) are shaping the program to share the latest thinking and results, and address opportunities within the field. 

This is an exciting opportunity for researchers across disciplines to engage in, learn about and discuss the latest concepts in cancer prevention research.
