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.
It is hard for me to believe that it has been almost two weeks since our 9th International Symposium! We first hosted this conference in 1999 and, while each year has been special, I think this year’s meeting, “Exploring the Human Breast: Employing New Technology,” was one of the best yet!
