The Cancer Epigenetics Society is the first and largest society solely dedicated to cancer epigenetics. The Cancer Epigenetics Society promotes cancer epigenetics research and supports cancer patients worldwide by working on several fronts: the society publishes six journals on the basic, translational, preclinical, and clinical aspects of cancer epigenetics, provides scientists with several cancer epigenetics databases, produces scientific and educational videos, reports daily news that can help better manage or even prevent cancer, and provides access to cancer patient blogs, books, and advocacy and support groups in several languages. The Cancer Epigenetics Society also organizes annual meetings that bring together cancer and epigenetics experts from around the world to speed up progress in cancer epigenetics research and help expedite transfer of discoveries from the bench to the bedside. The Cancer Epigenetics Society also awards annual prizes to the best cancer epigenetics research published in its journals from Society members. Candidates for the prize are shortlisted based on nominations and a general vote from all of its members. Final selection of the prize laureate or laureates from the shortlist is made by the society's scientific board. The society operates mostly with volunteers (scientists and non-scientists) and all and any donations to the society are entirely used to promote cancer epigenetics research and support cancer patient services. The society welcomes applications for membership all year round.
