I am a cancer biologist and am looking forward to running with the AACR Runners for Research, now for the third time, to raise awareness and funding for cancer research. We've all been touched by cancer and the need for research is clear. By funding a broad range of cancer research, the AACR helps support junior investigators, young scientists, and helps bring new discoveries to light. I myself was funded by AACR early in my scientific career and am excited to help others and advance cancer knowledge and care.
