Atlanta – what’s exactly behind a poster board mobbing at AACR?

AACR19 Poster Hall

Is there some science or rationale behing the attention or is it something quite quirky and unexpected?

That was the critical question we wondered about as we traversed the poster hall sessions over the last few days and noticed the certain posters received more attention than others:

  • Why was this?
  • Is there a rhyme and reason to it?
  • Which ones were actually mobbed?
  • Is the attention justified?

If you’re curious like we were, then this is the post for you.

We highlight several posters from the AACR19 conference that received a noticeable amount of traffic and in future posts we will highlight those we consider to be gems from the poster halls and explain why, which… wasn’t necessarily quite the same thing (as being mobbed).

So without much ado, which ones were in the spotlight by AACR attendees this year?

On BSB we write about the science driving innovation in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry, and how that translates into new product development.

One of our favorite meetings of the cancer conference calendar is the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). The 2019 annual meeting starts in Atlanta later this week and is the cancer research mecca that we and others will be heading to later this week.

Ahead of the meeting we’re continuing our #AACR19 previews with a look at some of the innovative, novel cancer agents we expect to hear more about in Atlanta.

In the first part of our preview we looked at the cancer immunotherapy related program from Friday through Sunday at the AACR 2019 (#AACR19) annual meeting at the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) in Atlanta.

This post looks at the program from Monday to Wednesday – you can find a review of the IO track for Fri-Sat here.

Don’t forget you can review the precise room details via the AACR meeting app prior to attending sessions as these are sometimes subject to change. We’ve based our posts on the preliminary program and it is highly likely there will be changes to meeting rooms, based on past experience.

We’re starting our review of the program for the forthcoming 2019 annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (Twitter hashtag to follow: #AACR19) with a look at the cancer immunotherapy program.

One of the challenges of a large meeting is that it’s like a smorgasbord or buffet in a hotel that’s resplendent in choices, but you can’t possibly eat it all.

Choices!

Some choose to follow a research area, others a target or tumor type. There’s a lot of ways to segment the program depending on your specific interests.

However, it’s a good idea to have a plan in place ahead of a large conference such as AACR, even if you modify it as you go to take into account evolving needs.

Seasoned conference goers will be familiar with the maxim known as “the law of two feet” – if a session you are in doesn’t live up to expectations or meet your needs and something else looks more to your taste from the tweets, then simply dash off to another!

In our latest conference preview, we’ve taken a careful look at the cancer immunotherapy track.

What are some of the key sessions to put on your calendar if you’re following this track or have an interest in this area?

In Part 1, we review the IO sessions from Friday to Sunday then tomorrow in Part 2, we’ll review the schedule from Monday to Wednesday.  Yes, it’s that intense this year! Just think, five years ago you had to search the program really quite hard indeed to even find much on immuno-oncology, as it was very much in its infancy then.
