Over 300 researchers and scientists from 25 countries participated in the 2005 AACR Special Conference on Advances in Breast Cancer Research. The conference, which was supported by a generous unrestricted educational grant from the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, featured high-profile speakers in the areas of stem cell biology, genetics and breast cancer risk, mouse models for breast cancer, genomic and proteomic approaches to tumor profiling, metastasis and breast cancer progression, oncogene signaling, the influence of tumor microenvironment on breast carcinogenesis, as well as state-of-the-art imaging methods and the latest in molecular therapeutics for breast cancer.
Plenary sessions focused on the latest discoveries in genetics, cell biology, and molecular biology that are relevant to mammary development, transformation, and breast cancer progression. Over 140 abstracts were submitted for poster presentation, and nearly 130 investigators presented their latest research during the informal poster sessions on Thursday and Friday evenings.
