Europe’s most exciting international cancer conference is the only one to involve all the major players in breast cancer. It encourages interaction between scientists, clinicians and patient representatives in a partnership of equals to talk not just about the very latest scientific advances, but also the ethical, social, political, and practical issues associated with caring for patients with breast cancer. EBCC12 is expected to attract around 3500 delegates from around 90 countries worldwide. It is the largest breast cancer conference outside the USA.
EBCC12 was due to take place in Barcelona, Spain, in March this year but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
