The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center presents this inaugural conference together with internationally-recognized clinicians and scientists on the leading edge of discovery in inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). Though uncommon, the aggressive nature of IBC necessitates an exclusive forum for experts and investigators to present up to date information. This conference, the first of its kind, will examine the latest international epidemiological data, review clinical diagnosis, imaging, disease management, and molecular investigation. Breakout sessions will provide tailored presentations to research scientists, nurses and patient advocates. Through this conference, we hope to minimize delay in the assessment of IBC, promote optimum patient care, and stimulate the search for curative therapies.
