Breast cancer research situation in East Asia: what does it look like?

In 2017, BIG welcomed into its network four new academic research groups, including organisations based in South Korea, Thailand and China, and looks forward to increased Asian input in the development and conduct of future international studies.

What does the breast cancer research situation in East Asia look like? Are the challenges similar to those faced in Western countries? What are the specific needs of Asian patients? In this issue, science writer Jenny Bryan tackles these questions with local and international experts.

In a wide-ranging interview with BIG, Prof Aron Goldhirsch shares his experience and vision of the future of breast cancer research.

Following a recent governance review, BIG is proud to present its expanded Executive Board, which better reflects the geographical extent of the organisation, as well as the broad range of expertise of its members. Meet our new Executive Board members, as well as the four research groups just joining the network, through the profiles and interviews presented in this newsletter.

Finally, and thanks to the precious contribution of the 59 collaborative member groupsconstituting the network, this issue will give you a peek at some of their activities, including both their own trials and those run under the BIG umbrella.

We hope you will enjoy the reading!
