"The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) unites and supports the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to ensure that cancer control continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda."
American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) was founded in 1907 and is the authoritative source of information about advances in the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer.
By accelerating the growth and spread of new knowledge about cancer, the AACR is on the front lines of the quest for prevention and cure.
AACR is the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world focused on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research. Its reputation for scientific breadth and excellence attract the premier researchers in the field.
The programmes and services of AACR foster the exchange of knowledge and new ideas among scientists dedicated to cancer research, provide training opportunities for the next generation of cancer researchers, and increase public understanding of cancer.
Today, AACR accelerates progress toward the prevention and cure of cancer by promoting research, education, communication and advocacy.
AACR has been full UICC member since 1962.
