American Society of Clinical Oncology



Alliance NCTN/NCORP/AFT at 2022 ASCO

The 58th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) will convene in-person June 3-7 in Chicago, bringing together thousands of oncology professionals from around the world. This year's meeting theme is "Advancing Equitable Cancer Care Through Innovation." Studies spanning the spectrum of cancer prevention and care, from immunotherapy and precision medicine to survivorship, will be highlighted.  

Each year, ASCO attendees learn from leading-edge scientific presentations, including papers and talks from Alliance researchers, as well as thousands of scientific abstracts and research news developments. At this year's conference, Alliance investigators will present more than 20 abstracts, sharing the latest findings on breast cancer, lung cancer, GI and GU cancers, along with cancer control research. The Alliance will be well-represented with dozens of researchers participating on panels, discussing new research, and presenting posters.

Note that the majority of abstracts will be released at 5 pm ET May 26, 2022.
