20th Annual International Congress on the Future of Breast Cancer® West



This congress will be delivered as a hybrid (on-site or virtual) experience due to COVID-19 pandemic spread.

This congress will provide clinicians with cutting-edge updates on recent advances in the treatment of breast cancer, from preclinical breakthroughs to changes in clinical treatment paradigms. Novel agents and improved regimens, coupled with more in-depth molecular and phenotypic subtyping, are driving the future of breast cancer therapy. This dynamic program will focus on the practical implications of emerging data for patient care in the clinic. Recent data and their clinical impact are highlighted throughout the program, with expert perspectives on how to apply the evidence to individualize therapy for patients with breast cancer. Current areas of controversy or uncertainty will also be debated, with discussion of ongoing clinical trials and investigational approaches designed to address these questions. This congress provides an opportunity for medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists and other health care professionals to learn from and interact with international leaders in the field of breast cancer in order to increase knowledge, apply new data to practice, and, ultimately, improve patient outcomes.
