Young Researchers Roundtable Breakfast

Susan G. Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast’s Young Researchers Roundtable Breakfast is a unique opportunity to connect early-career breast cancer researchers with established local Komen scholars, physicians, scientists, individuals living with metastatic breast cancer, breast cancer survivors, and co-survivors in a meaningful way.

For the third year, the breakfast will focus on metastatic breast cancer (MBC) and will include presentations by individuals vested in MBC research and treatment. Young researchers will also have the opportunity to provide brief overviews of their breast cancer research projects. Alongside researcher presentations, there will be table discussions about breast cancer research and treatment and its impact on patient care. A “Soda Float Social” will follow the event to allow time for interested participants to connect and network beyond the roundtable discussions.

Our goal is to move closer to finding the cures to breast cancer by encouraging open dialogue while developing a passionate, informed, and supportive community in the Triangle. #FindingSolutions
