BRCA: Challenges and Opportunities

The Sixth International Symposium on Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer

Join colleagues – clinicians and researchers from over 25 countries – for the sixth edition of this event which has come to be recognized as THE major international conference that covers specific targeted therapies for hereditary cancer. It is an accredited continuing educational activity for physicians, nurses and genetic counselors.

BRCA: Challenges and Opportunities represents a unique opportunity to look at all aspects of breast and ovarian cancer, and in particular the susceptibility genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, which are responsible for a considerable fraction of early-onset breast cancer.

Topics covered will include the origins, diagnosis and outcome of BRCA-related ovarian cancer, prevention and treatment of HBOC, and new challenges in genetic counseling in the era of panel testing, to name just a few.

We are pleased to once again issue a Call for Abstracts for oral and poster presentations. Interested participants are invited to submit abstracts on topics related to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Submissions are welcome from all disciplines.

Deadline for Oral Abstract Submissions: November 30, 2015
Deadline for Poster Abstract Submissions: January 22, 2016

The tradition of an all-day Public Session for patients, families and interested members of the public will continue as part of our commitment to educate and inform the wider population about BRCA 1 and 2. Click here.
