After two virtual meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially fitting that the return to an in-person meeting coincides with the 115th Anniversary celebration of the founding of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), said AACR CEO Margaret Foti, PhD, MD (hc), in her remarks to attendees during the Opening Ceremony of the AACR Annual Meeting 2022 on Sunday, April 10, in New Orleans. “It’s amazing to be back together again and to feel the excitement and the energy at this meeting after three long years since we were last together in 2019,” Dr. Foti said. “Despite all the obstacles presented by COVID-19, this is an incredibly exciting, innovative, and hopeful time in cancer research. As reflected in the theme of this year’s meeting, the primary strides we are making across the spectrum of cancer science are driving transformative progress against the disease at an exhilarating pace.”
