The Annual Laura Evans Memorial Breast Cancer Symposium is an invitation-only conference that encourages the free exchange of ideas and current breast cancer research. Attendees include basic scientists, clinical investigators and practicing clinicians. The attendees have intense working sessions to share unpublished information, analyze breakthroughs, recognize hurdles to finding a cure and discuss advances in treatment. After the Symposium, attendees continue to pool information and develop new cross-country clinical trials.

"This is an exciting time for breast cancer research, because we are on the verge of uncovering so much information about each cancer's unique drivers. This knowledge should lead us to more targeted, personalized therapies that will deliver more cures for more patients."

"The Expedition Inspiration Annual Symposium is truly a meeting of the greatest minds in breast cancer research — the 'rock stars' of the field. It is a powerful event because of its singular focus on sharing ideas to move the field forward. There is nothing quite like it, and it exists because of Expedition Inspiration's mission and supporters." — Expedition Inspiration board member, Kimberly Allison, M.D.
