Date:11/13/2007

is key to our collective success," said Myra Biblowit, President of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). "We have different approaches, and somewhat different philosophies and programs, but we are united in our shared responsibility to fund research, our shared demand that it adheres to the highest standards, and our shared responsibility to ensure that its benefits are translated to the clinic, for the patients who need it."

Larry Norton, MD, Director of Breast Cancer Programs at Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center and Scientific Director of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, summarized the work of the Summit as follows: "This Summit is a critical step toward identifying, analyzing, and eventually overcoming all the barriers that stand between where we are now and the eradication of breast cancer. The researchers of our nation and the world are counting on the united dedication of organizations, governments, corporations, and individuals to this mission."
