The Symposium will include sessions focused on ILC biology, challenges in ILC diagnosis and treatment, new avenues of ILC research, and a discussion of opportunities for researchers, clinicians and advocates to work together to advance ILC research. The featured keynote address is “Features of Lobular Breast Cancer: Opportunities for Individualizing Therapy,” presented by Christine Desmedt, PhD, (Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven Molecular).
