Garvan’s 2020 breast cancer symposium

Please note: In the wake of the recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Garvan Institute is committed to taking steps to safeguard the health of all visitors. Garvan’s location on the St Vincent’s precinct also means we have a close proximity to vulnerable people attending regularly for treatment. Due to this reason, the Garvan Institute has taken the precautionary measure to indefinitely postpone the Public breast cancer symposium. 

Join us for a free breast cancer symposium.

Hear about our research advances in new treatments, drug resistance and metastasis, as well as new clinical trials.
Hosted by Associate Professors, Elgene Lim and Alex Swarbrick, the symposium will include an international keynote speaker, Garvan researchers and oncologists and guest speakers

Date: Friday, 13 March 2020
Time: 2-4pm, followed by light refreshments
Location: Garvan Institute of Medical Research
Cost: Free of charge – registration is essential
