Breast cancer conference theme

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide with about 1.67 million new cases each year. Research has played a critical role in reducing breast cancer mortality. However, despite accelerated treatment options, more than half a million breast cancer patients still die from this disease.

The New Zealand Breast Cancer Symposium is New Zealand's first breast cancer symposium. It aims to promote basic and clinical research on breast cancer, stimulate domestic and international collaborations, and expedite the translation of laboratory discoveries into clinical applications, for improved treatment and life quality of those with breast cancer.

The symposium's organising committee now invites registrations and/or abstracts for oral and poster presentations. All abstract submissions should be made by email to nzbcs@aut.ac.nz, and registrations completed online at www.nzbcs.org.nz.

Keynote speakers: Professor Sir David Lane, Professor Geoffrey Lindeman, Professor Peter Lobie, and Assistant Professor Andrew Green.
