The Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is a fantastic opportunity to stay up-to-date with clinical trials and research developments. Delegates have the opportunity to network with leading health professionals from across Australia and New Zealand.

Breast Cancer Trials (BCT) is pleased to offer a reduced registration fee for all current group members to thank them for their support. The registration includes attendance at all sessions, all ASM materials, all catering breaks, plus the social functions.

There is also a reduced registration fee for Trial Coordinators, Students and Registrars. This is an important meeting providing valuable education and training in the area of breast cancer research and we strongly encourage clinicians to support the attendance of their clinical trials staff.

If you are not a current member of the group, you are welcome to attend.

The Breast Cancer Trials Annual Scientific Meeting is not open to the general public to attend.

If you are not a current full BCT member, please go to www.breastcancertrials.org.au/member-application-form to apply for membership. Membership applications must be submitted by 16 May to be considered by the board at their June meeting. You will be able to access the member registration rate after Board approval is confirmed. Please note that current involvement in a BCT clinical trial does not automatically confirm BCT membership. Please contact membership@bctrials.org.au if you have any questions regarding BCT membership.
