Call for Abstracts

A new aspect of the BCT ASM in 2022 is the inclusion of oral presentations selected from submitted abstracts in the program.  We invite members to consider submission of abstracts of their current work.

Abstracts describing work relating to clinical trials in progress or completed, projects that may inform future clinical trials and projects identifying issues for which clinical trials may be beneficial are all welcome. Abstracts from trainees, Fellows and Junior faculty from all of the breast cancer disciplines are particularly welcome.  Some abstracts will be offered oral presentations and others offered posters to be displayed during the ASM.  Prizes will be awarded for the best abstracts.
