MICR is a membership group within the AACR committed to preventing and curing cancer while meeting the professional needs and advancing the careers of minority scientists.
WICR is a membership group within the AACR committed to recognizing women’s scientific achievements and fostering their career development and advancement in cancer research.
AMC serves as the leadership body for AACR associate members, who consist of graduate students, medical students and residents, and clinical and postdoctoral fellows. The council develops programs that address the particular needs of early-career scientists.
The AACR is a Sustaining Member of the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA), which is dedicated to enhancing the quality of the postdoctoral experience for all participants. In September, the NPA organized National Postdoc Appreciation Week, which the AACR supported by organizing a series of AACR Cancer Careers Clinics in its home city of Philadelphia. During events held at the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and Thomas Jefferson University, members of the AACR staff provided clinical and postdoctoral fellows with professional development advice on transitioning their careers, obtaining grants, getting their research published, and developing a curriculum vitae.
