Dr. Oesterreich and Kevin Levine at SABCS

Dr. Oesterreich presented our lab’s work on unique biology if ILC in a minisymposium on “LOBULAR BREAST CANCER – IS IT A DIFFERENT DISEASE?”.

Dr. Oesterreich enjoyed the chance to meet with breast cancer advocates from the Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance (LBCA) at SABCS. They also showed an outstanding poster!

In addition, our own Kevin Levine presented his work on FGFR4 in a poster discussion at the 2017 SABCS.
