Posted by Denise Hope | 1 comment

The Institute of Bio-Sensing Technology together with the University of the West of England are organising a one day conference exploring issues around Breast Cancer. The conference is being held at the UWE Conference and Exhibition Centre and aims to provide an update on a range of issues that influence the management of women with breast cancer.

All those with an interest in this field: patients, relatives, nurses, researchers, health care professionals to include clinical and biomedical scientists, surgeons, oncologists and general practitioners will find this conference useful.

The speakers are international experts in their respective areas and between them will touch on topics such as:

  • the influence of diet on metabolic pathways and cancer
  • the latest developments in biomedical research
  • surgery and therapies
  • new developments in service delivery
  • follow-up support and survivorship
  • an international perspective

The programme for the day is designed to meet continuing professional development needs for professional attendees (CPD credits will be available for participants), but also to provide an opportunity for women with breast cancer and their supporters to hear about current developments from both local and international experts from the academic world and from clinical practice.

This event is supported by the Microelectronics iNet, which is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
