Breast Cancer Cure in association with the University of Auckland, will be holding a Breast Cancer Summit, to define in detail a shared vision for breast cancer research in New Zealand over the next 10 years, while celebrating 10 years of impactful research to date.
Breast Cancer Cure is New Zealand's only not-for-profit organisation established solely to support research into breast cancer. Since it's establishment, Breast Cancer Cure has funded many significant research projects in New Zealand totaling over $10 million.
The Breast Cancer Summit objective is to chart a real vision for the next 10 years through collaboration among New Zealand clinicians, scientists and consumers to drive future research. With the majority of research conducted in New Zealand by New Zealand researchers, change the lives of New Zealand women to achieve better outcomes via: improved prevention, earlier detection and deeper molecular knowledge of individual patients' tumours to guide their therapy enhanced by international collaborations.
Whilst the Summit is New Zealand focussed, it not insular, with 5 influential international speakers along with world leading local researchers and scientists.
The Summit will offer those working in the field: oncologists, scientists, health professionals, regulators and consumers a unique opportunity to discuss our current state of knowledge, future research opportunities and what our priorities are for improving survival and optimising outcomes.
