This meeting has the unambiguous aim of being the UK’s premier breast cancer conference. Treatment of breast cancer has for many years been dependent on the interaction of professionals from many disciplines. Research into improving our understanding of this complex disease and prospects for improving its prevention and treatment also require interdisciplinary collaboration to make meaningful advances. http://breastcancerconference.org/
