Greetings! Indian Association of Cancer Research (IACR) was
founded in November, 1980 in Mumbai with envision towards
advancements in research encompassing all the aspects of cancers
as well as to promote the interaction among researchers in this
field from across different parts of our nation. Over the past
40 years, IACR has made significant strides from fostering
research in cancer diagnosis, therapy and prevention to
promoting cancer education and cancer awareness amongst the
Since 2007 IACR newsletter had shared many prominent articles
form eminent cancer researchers. The IACR newsletter was
discontinued in past years, now the editorial team has decided
to restart the Newsletter. The main objective of the newsletter
is to keep our members (especially, the young scientists) well
versed with advanced and latest developments in cancer research.
The editorial team thought that it will be more useful if the
newsletter gives an update in an interesting and helpful way,
rather than a pushy science periodical. Therefore, the team has
decided to focus on following three chief features, which will
be added in the contents of upcoming IACR newsletter:
1. A family network with IACR Members. Sharing accomplishments and achievements of IACR members with other members.
2. A promise to deliver a valuable stuff that will be useful to cancer researchers' work
3. As a new feature in this newsletter, there will be a little add-on of short summaries and unique content to keep the members informed on various cancer concomitant topics
For now, the editorial team has decided to publish two issues
of 'IACR Newsletter' in 2021 with sole motto of disseminating
information about IACR's activities and the latest scientific
developments. The first issue will be published in April and
second in October. The newsletter will be sent to all the
national and international life members of the association as
well as to the annual members and the student members.
Eminent scientists from all over world may contribute their
articles for these two issues of IACR 2021 and provide the
latest information to the readers. In addition, the IACR
newsletter will also publish awards/honours and achievements
gained by IACR members.
As this is a new start, the Editorial Team requests ideas and
recommendations from EC members as well all other IACR members.
