About NZBCS-2021:

The New Zealand Association of Breast Cancer Research Incorporated (NZABC® Inc.) is organizing the second New Zealand Breast Cancer Symposium in 2021 (NZBCS-2021), which will be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 18-20th November 2021.

The conference will be hosted by the School of Science, Faculty of Health and Environmental Sciences of the Auckland University of Technology (AUT), in association with the major breast cancer charities in New Zealand.

NZBCS is a triennial international conference for widespread dissemination of the latest advancement in breast cancer research. The inaugural NZBCS-2017 conference was held in 2017 and was attended by many local researchers, clinicians and health professionals as well as delegates from over 25 other countries. The second conference NZBCS-2020 was originally scheduled to be held in 2020 but postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. NZBCS-2021 continues to serve as a global forum for researchers to present research findings, share ideas and keep abreast of the latest progress of breast cancer detection technologies, research methodologies and treatment options.

NZABC® Inc. is a non-profit scientific organisation for breast cancer research and was established at the inaugural NZBCS-2017 conference. Its vision is to be "United for a Cure Through Research” and make those with breast cancer live longer.

The theme of NZBCS-2021 conference is “From Prevention, Early Diagnosis to Targeted Therapy”. Breast cancer is preventable. Prevention is the most effective practice to reduce cancer incidence and mortality. On the other hand, breast cancer is also curable if diagnosed early and treated with the right therapy. Early diagnosis and targeted therapies of breast cancers will significantly improve patients’ chance of survival and quality of life. NZBCS-2021 conference will focus on those aspects of breast cancer research.

The aims of NZABC® Inc. is, through NZBCS triennial international conferences, to promote basic and clinical research on breast cancer, stimulate domestic and international collaborations, and expedite the translation of laboratory discoveries into clinical applications, ultimately for improved treatment of those with breast cancer. We will endeavour to achieve these in the upcoming NZBCS-2021.

Last but not least, with the support of regional and national breast cancer charities, there will be a session dedicated for breast cancer support services. It will be open to the public for networking and information sharing. In this regard, NZBCS is also a public forum that creates a link of the public to breast cancer advocates, scientists, clinicians and pharmaceutical industry.
