Watch the AACR from your couch

Cool stuff. I wish more conferences were podcasted, and this is a step in the right direction. The following video was presented during AACR's "One World, One Quest Gala," held November 13, 2005 at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Cancer researchers from several major institutions recall poignant moments in their careers and why they've devoted their lives to this effort. Nick Valvano, chief executive officer of the V Foundation for Cancer Research, and Dr. Margaret Foti, AACR's CEO, also share their thoughts about the importance of cancer research and the critical role played by the AACR and its members over its almost 100-year history.
