The World Cancer Leaders’ Summit is the most important
annual high-level policy meeting dedicated exclusively to influencing global decisions
which impact cancer control. The Summit is convened by the Union for
International Cancer Control (UICC) on behalf of the UN agencies (WHO, IAEA,
IARC) and is hosted for 2021 in the United States by the American Society for
Clinical Pathology (ASCP), a member of MassBIO. The WCLS provides a vital forum
to secure a global, cross-sector response and ensure accountability in
addressing a significant non-communicable disease (NCD), bringing together key
decision makers from around the world and encouraging timely debate on emerging
global issues related to cancer. 
 Confirmed speakers/presentations include Paul Farmer, Atul
Gawande, Holly Kuzmich, David Simas, Suleika Jaouad, Baba Brinkman, Charles
Goddard, Karen Knudsen, Rifat Atun, Paul Limburg, Jill Jim, Dave Craig, Anil D’Cruz,
Michelle Mitchell, Andrea Feigl, Ian Frazer, Satish Gopal, Sue Horton, and Norm
Sharpless to name a few! Additional invitees for this prestigious event include
President and First Lady Biden, former Presidents and First Ladies Clinton and
Bush, as well as other world leaders, presidents, minsters of health, CEOs,
etc. We are excited that our colleagues from HHS, FDA, NIH as well as Roche,
Pfizer, Genetech, Foundation Medicine, PaigeAI, Dana-Farber, ASCO, American
Cancer Society and many others will be joining us!
 This will be the first time the Summit will be held in the
United States. The theme for the 2021 WCLS is: “Driving innovation to
advance cancer control equitably
”.
