Abstract:

This meeting represents the collaborative efforts of many people to reduce breast cancers impact on the lives of all who are affected by the disease. The 2008 meeting highlights the multidisciplinary, high-impact, innovative research that the DOD BCRP has funded in our efforts to eradicate breast cancer. One of the DOD BCRPs most notable hallmarks is the unique collaboration among the research community, breast cancer consumers, and the U.S. Government, This collaborative spirit represents the culmination of hard work initiated and sustained by survivors and advocates, Congresss decision to continue research funding for breast cancer, and the dedication of scientists and clinicians to the programs. This Era of Hope meeting demonstrates the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Commands commitment to manage the DOD BCRP in a manner responsive to the vision and equal to the dedication of all our partners.
