4th course of breast cancer: from the clinic to biology
This course focuses on breast cancers from both a biological and a clinical perspective. It covered the biology of breast cancers in the context of pathology, diagnostics of the disease and treatments, ongoing medical trials as well as modalities of follow-up. A special focus emphasized recent data on basal-like and hereditary breast cancers, their new therapeutic strategies and the input of next generation sequencing in breast cancer biology.
Moreover, key recent findings on tumor micro-environment, long non-coding RNA, Notch signalling pathways and mammary development were described.
