    the Breast Cancer as it is the most common type of cancer in the region. This conference will include, among other things, new information, consolidated

    knowledge, and conversations on controversial issues regarding the prevention and risk of breast cancer, imaging and screening, new approaches in targeted therapies, and more. MENA Oncology Conference will be a great opportunity for governmental

    and non-governmental cancer control officials, physicians, researchers and health professionals, and also for patients, advocates, volunteers and others interested in cancer control, from all over the world, to get together and exchange views on how to

    deal with cancer. Key topics: Regional Perspective on Breast Cancer The Challenges facing national cancer control plans Early detection and Screening of Breast cancer Controversies in Breast cancer: Adjuvant and Neoadjuvant Therapy Update and change in the treatment of Triple Negative Breast Cancer Evolving Issues in Inflammatory Breast Cancer Prevention and Risk of Breast Cancer Imaging and Screening of Breast Cancer New Approaches in Targeted Therapy for Breast Cancer Breast Reconstruction Cancer Stem Cells and Breast Cancer Metastasis

    around the world to present their achievements and discuss the most

    recent advances in cancer, from basic research to clinical applications.

    To foster networking, the participation to the Symposium is limited to

    about 150 scientists. Coimbra, which is located approximately two hours

    by train north of Lisbon, is a friendly university town with many

    attractions, namely its University, which was founded in 1290 and is,
