  • European scientists are leading the way in breast cancer research - discovering new therapies, diagnostics and surgical techniques which are helping save the lives of millions of women
  • Breast cancer, however, is not just a physical disease as it can produce profound psychological distress, not only in the patient but also in his or her immediate family and friends
  • Three of Europe's leading cancer organisations are collaborating to host the event:
       o European Organisation for the Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC)
       o The European Breast Cancer Coalition (EUROPA DONNA)
       o European Society of Mastology (EUSOMA)
  • Over four thousand scientists, doctors, nurses and patients will be exchanging the latest cutting edge results from research in science, psychological care, diagnosis and treatment
  • Recent leads on possible causes of breast cancer will be presented along with updates on genetics, proteomics and tumour imaging
  • Nearly all the data at the four-day conference is as yet unpublished and being presented for the first time
  • Daily press conferences will be taking place, featuring breaking news and every scientific session is open to journalists, plus there will be a fully equipped media centre
