Artemis Project Update 

For the first time since 2020, NBCC was able to convene its annual meeting of the Artemis Project® in person. The March 2022 meeting brought many different perspectives to the discussion of how to end breast cancer. Participants included advocates, clinicians, scientists, and engineers, who together developed new action plans to address primary prevention and preventing metastasis.  The meeting report will be available on our website soon. 

In-Person 2022 Summit Countdown – One Month Away. Spread the Word! 

Join 150 other devoted breast cancer advocate leaders from across the country to learn from leading scientists, advocates, and your peers. 

This year’s summit includes a number of exciting plenary sessions as well as numerous seminars and workshops. In addition, we will be offering Project LEAD® grads a special pre-conference workshop on Saturday, April 30 titled “Applications of Advanced Technologies Like CRISPR in Breast Cancer Research.”  

This session will explore the current state of technology around CRISPR/CRISPR-associated (Cas) technology we have all heard so much about. Learn about CRISPR strategies for the advancement of breast cancer diagnostics, modeling, and treatment as well as how current research is heading toward developing a precision medicine-based approach.
