Organised by the Breast International Group (BIG) and the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), the IMPAKT Breast Cancer Conference is a multidisciplinary meeting which brings together oncology specialists working in basic, translational and clinical research in an effort to turn the latest laboratory discoveries into better treatment options. Networking, dialogue and interaction are high on the agenda of IMPAKT. The event allows you to stay up-to-date with scientific progress in breast cancer research as the therapeutic road from the laboratory to the clinic shortens.
