San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium Recap
More than 8,000 breast cancer physicians and researchers from around the world traveled to San Antonio this week to present the latest advances in basic, translational and clinical research in breast cancer at the 36th annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.
The College’s faculty have long been involved with the symposium, dating back to the inaugural meeting in 1978. Dr. Kent Osborne, director of the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center and the NCI-designated Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center at BCM and co-director of the symposium, has served as co-director since 1992. The College has been a co-sponsor since 1999.
