2nd Global Insight Conference on Breast Cancer
Breast cancer represents the front runner in cancer research in many aspects. First, this is a common, chronic and lethal disease where medical interventions are successfully inducing a continuous decline in mortality in spite of increasing incidence. Second, biology drives the entire diagnostic-therapeutic work up of these patients. This is why, nowadays, a breast multidisciplinary team should also include pathologists, molecular biologists, oncogeneticists besides the “classic” clinical specialties. Third, many highly effective interventions are available for each step of the diagnostic and therapeutic work-up of these patients. With this goal in mind, the Programme of this Conference includes lectures on molecular characterization, epidemiology, detection and diagnosis, metastatic breast cancer, updated treatments of early and advanced disease, surgery & radiotherapy, management of difficult cases and hereditary syndromes.
We welcome medical oncologists, pathologists, breast surgeons, radiation oncologists and basic scientists to listen to breast cancer leaders and to exchange experiences in a friendly atmosphere.
Mark your calendars now and stay tuned for more information.
