I have found there are two key conferences to follow to keep up with the latest cancer news annually. First of all, each June there is the annual ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncologists) conference held around the country. As oncologists come together and the outcome produces a slew of new research news for all types of cancer translated into normal English.
Second, is the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium held in early/mid-December each year in San Antonio TX. That was just held and so much news was just released. There was so much new news that you should go read it all yourself if you want to stay up on the latest.
As with any professional conference, this is when a group of professionals who are scattered across the country, and the rest of the world, get together and find out about new research, get ideas for more research, and compare notes. The benefit to us cancer people is huuuuggggge.
So go read.
