Metastatic Breast Cancer Research Conference
Clinical | Basic Science | Survivorship
Hosted by University of Kansas Cancer Center & Theresa’s Research Foundation
Friday, September 12 – Saturday, September 13, 2014
Overview: Metastatic, stage IV, or advanced breast cancers are defined by spread beyond the breast into other body systems. Metastases account for greater than 90% of cancer morbidity and mortality. This translates into nearly 40,000 deaths each year in the U.S. and ~500,000 worldwide. Metastatic breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women below 50 years of age.
This Conference presents updates on Basic Science, Clinical, and Survivorship issues that relate to the development, treatment and sequelae of metastatic breast cancer. The integration of all three aspects are presented with the belief that all three phases are needed to understand and effectively treat metastatic breast cancer. The conference will also focus on collaboration.
