The San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, held annually in the Texas city that is its namesake, attracts thousands of researchers, physicians, health professionals, patient advocates, and others who share the mission of advancing the battle against breast cancer. The symposium provides a critical opportunity for researchers to present their latest findings, learn about the work of other scientists, and share ideas for future studies.
This year's event, which ran from December 10 through 14, drew more than 7,000 attendees from nearly 100 countries and included more than 1,400 research presentations.
Researchers and physicians from the Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute comprise a major contingent at each year's symposium. This year, more than 30 members of the center's faculty were in attendance, presenting dozens of research reports and leading educational sessions and career development forums.
