New Insights Into Metastatic Breast Cancer

Dr. Lippman will review the current status of clinical management of systemic breast cancer, with its obvious achievements and challenges. He will describe a new model for understanding the metastatic progression of breast cancer and the identification of both site specific and global genes likely involved in the metastatic process. Dr. Lippman will also discuss changes induced by the primary breast cancer in target tissues which make them receptive of metastases which are therapeutically exploitable.
