The IABCR and the organizing committee are pleased to announce the 31st Conference of the International Association for Breast Cancer Research.
The event aims to explore the molecular mechanisms that drive breast cancer development and progression and novel intervention strategies, with particular emphasis on innovative and cutting-edge advances. To this end, the Conference will bring together basic researchers and clinicians, leaders in the field and young scientists, maximizing fruitful interaction between participants.

International speakers coming from the most appreciated institutes of breast cancer research and treatment and largely recognized for their work will address topics including:

  • Hormones and breast cancer
  • In vitro and mouse models of breast cancer
  • Signaling pathway crosstalk
  • Breast cancer genomics and evolution
  • Immuno-oncology
  • Mammary gland biology and stem cells
  • Translational research

Emerging researchers will be encouraged to participate and to actively discuss their findings through presentations of talks selected from abstracts and during the ample time dedicated to posters.
