Who are MRS members?

We are a community of stakeholders in cancer metastasis research!

Since 1984, the Metastasis Research Society (MRS) has been an international professional society of researchers, clinicians, clinician scientists, and members of industry who are dedicated specifically to solving the problem of cancer metastasis. In 2017, the MRS expanded membership to include metastatic patients, caregivers, family members, and friends. Members of the metastatic community also now have the option to participate actively in the MRS and lend their voices to the development and execution of patient-centered metastasis research grants/projects.

The Metastasis Research Society facilitates communication and dissemination of knowledge among scientists and others dedicated to the metastasis problem; fosters research and accelerates progress in metastasis-related biomedical sciences; encourages the presentation and discussion of new and important observations in the field; and encourages new investigators to enter the field; and advances the understanding of cancer metastasis throughout the world.
