UT Southwestern Events Calendar

2019 Wendy and Emery Reves International Breast Cancer Symposium

Join the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center on September 20-21, 2019, for the Wendy & Emery Reves International Breast Cancer Symposium.

The Reves Symposium is a premier event at UT Southwestern whose objectives are to review the recent progress in breast cancer research and improvements in the clinical care of patients with breast cancer. The Reves Symposium provides information on the latest laboratory-based translational discoveries and new technologies, while exploring developments in treatment options, clinical trials, and population sciences.

Reves Symposium attendees include breast cancer providers and nursing professionals, basic and translational scientists, physician-scientists, clinical trialists, laboratory-based postdoctoral and clinical fellows, graduate students, patient advocates, and interested individuals from industry and North Texas communities.
