Aims

Mortality from breast cancer is declining in most countries thanks to effective screening programs, early diagnosis, molecular characterization of the different subtypes and biology-driven treatments. A multidisciplinary management of breast cancer patients is therefore the key to success and a breast multidisciplinary team should include - besides the “classic” clinical specialties - pathologists, molecular biologists and geneticists. Furthermore, the availability of multiple diagnostic and therapeutic choices, the increasing costs of new technologies and drugs and the issue of sustainability represent a new challenge for socially-responsible clinicians. With this goal in mind, the Programme includes lectures on molecular characterization, updated treatments of early and advanced disease, management of difficult cases and hereditary syndromes and issues of sustainability and drug access across countries.

Clinical case discussions and debates are planned to allow a continuous and fruitful exchange of experiences and opinions between speakers and participants.

This 16th Breast Cancer Conference includes highly qualified international faculty, but will maintain its characteristics of a friendly forum where opinion leaders and attendees might exchange experiences and share the most exiting advances.

In order to reward scientific excellence and to foster international cooperation, the International Scientific Committee of the 16th AIBCC will award the 10th International Prize for Breast Cancer Research to a scientist who has published a breakthrough paper in the previous year. We also welcome the presentation of posters from participants and the best poster will be awarded during the Award Ceremony.

The Conference is addressed to medical oncologists, pathologists, breast surgeons, radiation oncologists and basic scientists who will have the opportunity to interact with breast cancer leaders and exchange experiences in a friendly atmosphere.

Addressed to

Gynaecologists and obstetrics, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons. Biologists, pharmacists, and nurses.

CME

Based on Italian regulations, Accademia Nazionale di Medicina (provider n. 31) will request the MCE Accreditation.

The credit certification is subject to:

  • Professions/specializations should correspond to those which have been accredited for CME;
  • 90% attendance to the meeting;
  • Completion of the meeting evaluation form;
  • Completion of the final questionnarie (at least 75% of correct answers).

We would like to remind you to participants that only 1/3 of CME credits acquired during the years 2020/2022 can come from a sponsorship.

Official Language

The official language of the Meeting is English. No simultaneous translation will be provided.

University of Padua award for advances in breast cancer 2020

The Scientific Committee will select young researchers (< 40 years from any country) who have published in an international peer-reviewed journal, as the principal author, a manuscript reporting important clinical or biological advances in breast cancer. The winner will be invited to present his/her study during the annual Conference.


Fellowships

Some fellowship (for under 40) will be awarded which will include registration and 3 Hotel nights. Those interested should send the registration form together with a short CV and a motivation letter within July 21st.
The organizing secretariat will confirm the award of the fellowship within July 30th and it will proceed with the organization of logistics.


Under 40

Free admission is available for a few people “under 40”. Registration forms will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis unitil spaces are filled. The Organization Secretariat will confirm the registration by email.
