About AACI
The Association of American Cancer Institutes comprises 96 leading cancer research centers in North America. AACI's membership roster includes National Cancer Institute-designated centers and academic-based cancer research programs that receive NCI support.

Mission
The Association is dedicated to reducing the burden of cancer by enhancing the impact of North America's leading academic cancer centers.

A key element of AACI's mission is to assist the centers in keeping pace with the changing landscape in science, technology and health care. AACI does this by gathering and sharing best practices among cancer centers, providing a forum for our members to address common challenges and explore new opportunities, supporting initiatives that engage the membership in developing specific recommendations to the NCI, and educating policy makers about the important role cancer centers play in advancing cancer discovery.
