Cancer research presented at 33rd Annual CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium
Date:12/1/2010

SAN ANTONIO More than 9,000 people from more than 90 countries will gather Dec. 8-12, 2010, at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, for the 33rd Annual CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.

The symposium is the largest of its kind anywhere in the world. Each year it draws academicians, clinicians, survivors, patient advocates, industry and others interested in the advancement of breast cancer research to discuss and learn about new and late-breaking research, which includes experimental biology, etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and therapy of breast cancer and pre-malignant breast disease, as well as new findings from clinical trials.

The CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium is a partnership between the Cancer Therapy and Research Center (CTRC) at UT Health Science Center San Antonio, the American Association for Cancer Research and Baylor College of Medicine.

"The driving force behind this collaboration is the shared mission of the organizations to advance progress against breast cancer," said Program Chairperson C. Kent Osborne, M.D., director of the Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center at the Baylor College of Medicine. "By combining their respective strengths, the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium encompasses the full spectrum of breast cancer research and facilitates the rapid transition of new knowledge into improved care for breast cancer patients."

The symposium begins on Wednesday, Dec. 8, with a full schedule of educational events. The opening plenary session begins the next day at 8:30 a.m. CT in Exhibit Hall D of the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center.

In addition to the ongoing plenary session, there is a full industry exhibit hall and a program for survivors and breast cancer advocates. Press conferences will be held for registered members of the media.
