In association with the Korean Breast Cancer Study Group and the Japanese Clinical Oncology Group

Count Every Second Until #BCT2024



Welcome to the official website for the Breast Cancer Trials (BCT) 2024 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM).

This is the 45th year of the conference, which will be held in association with the Japanese Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG) and the Korean Breast Cancer Study Group (KBCSG), and is the foremost meeting for breast cancer clinical trials research in Australasia.

Hosting a number of internationally renowned guest speakers including key BCT researchers, delegates include leading Australian and New Zealand medical practitioners and clinicians, and clinical trials management personnel. The full and extensive program will include two days of scientific sessions covering timely reviews of breast cancer clinical trials, discussion of new protocols, future clinical trials research and other research developments. The ASM will also include abstracts, debates, and is followed by a two-day trainee and early-career weekend. The theme for the ASM will be International Collaboration in Breast Cancer Trials, and we look forward to colleagues joining the meeting.

BCT is a world leading clinical trials research organisation, dedicated to finding new and better treatments and prevention strategies for people affected by this disease. Our research program involves multicentre national and international clinical trials and brings together more than 980 researchers in 118 institutions throughout Australia and New Zealand. BCT has contributed to over 1,230 peer-reviewed publications and more than 17,170 women have participated in our breast cancer clinical trials.

We look forward to an in-person meeting, offering the opportunity for us all to connect in Queensland, Australia. For up-to-date information on COVID-19 in Australia, including travel requirements, click here.
