The 17th Annual International Congress on the Future of Breast Cancer® West serves as an update on advances in the breast cancer field, with a focus on the clinical implications of breast cancer genetic and phenotypic subtyping. Novel agents, strategies, and improved regimens are changing the future of breast cancer therapy, and these advances and their clinical impact are highlighted throughout the program. Current controversies in the field are also addressed and debated and new data presented, along with information about how to optimally individualize breast cancer therapy. This conference provides a unique opportunity for medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists and other health care professionals to learn from and interact with international leaders in breast cancer in order to increase knowledge, apply new data to practice, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
