Welcome to the first UK Interdisciplinary Breast Cancer Symposium 2017

This two day conference will bring together the brightest minds in breast cancer management and research. This event promises the delivery of a dynamic conference of speakers, discussion and debate.

A message from the Chair of the Organising Committee

“I am delighted to invite you on behalf of the Executive Committee to participate in the 1st UK Interdisciplinary Breast Cancer Symposium.  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.  We have therefore brought together UK bodies representing the major disciplines in its treatment and research to create this exciting new venture. 

We very much hope to see you in Manchester for what promises to be an outstanding meeting”.
