The AACR appreciates that the COVID-19 pandemic might well be impacting your health, the work ongoing in your labs, and may be placing you on the front lines to fight and care for those affected. In support of your research, particularly as it relates to COVID-19, the AACR has undertaken a number of initiatives, including the creation of a COVID-19 Task Force, the hosting of special sessions on COVID-19 and cancer at the AACR Virtual Annual Meeting, a special virtual conference that focused on COVID-19 and cancer, and this COVID-19 & Cancer Resource Center. This online resource brings together content related to COVID-19 from across the AACR journals as soon as it is published—and it is free to access for the duration of the pandemic.
