Metastatic Breast
Cancer Research Conference

Salt Lake City | September 10 – 11

A conference with a mission.

Working together to change the odds.

The mission of this medical conference is to bring together a diverse audience to create a collaborative research environment with a long term goal of developing curative approaches for metastatic breast cancer patients.

About the Conference

The Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference was established in 2014 as an annual medical conference for metastatic breast cancer by Theresa’s Research Foundation with leadership from Dr. Matthew Ellis and Dr. Danny Welch. The specific focus on metastatic disease is based on a major unmet clinical need (incurability); thereby distinguishing this conference from other breast cancer-centered conferences. The first conference was hosted at the University of Kansas Cancer Center. In 2015, 2016 and 2017 the MBCC was hosted at Baylor College of Medicine. The 2018 Conference took place at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The 2019 Conference was held with Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. Additional leadership is provided by Dr. Xiang Zhang and the conference planning committee.
