About the Conference
The 2022 AICR Research Conference will be held as a hybrid event on October 31-November 2, 2022, with both a fully virtual option and an in-person program held at the Lansdowne Resort and Spa in Leesburg, VA.
Registration for the virtual event will open in August. Please note, all in-person attendees must be fully vaccinated according to CDC recommendations, as of October 2022. Further details on COVID safety procedures will be available closer to the conference date.

This three-day event will feature dynamic topics including:
- Trusted sources – Combating misinformation through effective evidence-based communication
- Enhancing cancer therapy through converging innovations in lifestyle and oncology research
- The role of lifestyle in the context of elevated genetic risk
- The research evidence to policy impact continuum – Developing and implementing cancer prevention, treatment and survivorship guidelines
…and much more!

Posters must be relevant to cancer or cancer survivorship and address the key exposures of diet, obesity or physical activity. The deadline to submit a poster abstract is August 29, 2022.
Poster Abstract Submission Fee: $50
If you are a post-doctoral scholar or a graduate student, you may elect to have your poster considered for the John A. Milner or AICR poster award, respectively. You must indicate during the poster submission process that you would like your poster to be considered.

2021 Conference Highlights
The rising tide of COVID-19 infections necessitated the cancellation of the in-person component of the 2021 AICR Research Conference but the meeting was seamlessly transitioned to a fully virtual experience. The same incredible speakers and program were delivered and with the added advantage that the content was recorded and can be revisited!
