Highlights in Precision Medicine from Virtual AACR 2020


Clarion congratulates the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) on successfully adapting their annual meeting to an online platform. Part one of the 2020 AACR Virtual Meeting on April 27–28 was the largest cancer conference in history, attracting over 61,000 attendees from 140 countries. The conference was wide-ranging, providing diverse clinical trial updates, preclinical explorations of novel mechanisms, and discussions of critical topics (such as COVID-19 in cancer patients), and we look forward to part two on June 22–24, 2020. In the meantime, we present here selected highlights focused specifically on precision medicine:
