Be a Life Member of IACR

With the motto of advancing research in all aspects of cancer and promoting interaction among scientists in this field from different parts of India, the INDIAN ASSOCIATION FOR CANCER RESEARCH (IACR) was founded in November 1980 at Mumbai. Over these 39 years IACR has made seminal contributions both in promoting the research in cancer therapy and prevention as well as spreading the cancer education and awareness.

WE welcome the active involvement of all those who conduct cancer and allied research, as well as medical/ paramedical professionals, cancer survivors, students, research administrators and all the community who support IACR's commitment, vision and mission to prevent and cure cancer, by becoming an IACR Member.

There has been a steady increase in the number of IACR Life Members, which amounts to about 1000, in addition to the 100 Overseas Members. As an IACR Life Member, you enjoy the triple benefits to participate, nominate as well as get nominated for the IACR executive committee elections.
