Association of American Cancer Institutes

Association of American Cancer Institutes

The Association of American Cancer Institutes (AACI) is a membership association of 89 academic and freestanding cancer research centers in the United States. AACI's membership roster consists of National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated centers and academic-based cancer research programs that receive National Institute of Health (NIH) and NCI support.

Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the association is dedicated to promoting the nation's leading cancer research institutions’ efforts to eradicate cancer through a comprehensive and multidisciplinary program of cancer research, treatment, patient care, prevention, education, and community outreach.

AACI cancer centers serve as the headquarters for most of the NCI sponsored clinical trials (research studies), which incorporate more than 16,000 scientists and physician-scientists to translate promising research findings into new approaches to prevent and treat cancer.

In addition to providing their local populations ready access to a wide array of cancer specialists—multidisciplinary experts in prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cancer care—AACI cancer centers have developed partnerships with local community and state health agencies to design and implement programs aimed at reducing the overall cancer burden of the region.
