Plenary Session - December 5, 2018
The best talk I heard on Wednesday at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium was the plenary lecture presented by Nicholas Navin of the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
The talk, 'Breast Tumor Evolution and Intratumor Heterogeneity: Insights from Single Cell Genomics,' focused on scientists' use of single cell genomics to understand how ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) evolves into invasive cancer.

The actual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium kicks off tomorrow, but there were several education sessions held on Tuesday afternoon to get us warmed up.
The reading I've done over the past several weeks has reminded me yet again why it is critical that we go back and question our assumptions about cancer.
I was among the many who were shocked to learn that this spring the United States pushed Ecuador to drop a resolution in support of breastfeeding it had intended to introduce in Geneva for the United Nations-affiliated World Health Assembly.
Breast cancer becomes deadly when it metastasizes spreads to other parts of the body. For decades, we've been focused on developing treatments that will keep early-stage breast cancer from recurring. Now, researchers are spending more time studying how and where cancer cells spreads, with the goal of developing treatments that may cure, or at least stabilize, metastatic breast cancer.
