The 5th Annual WCRC Scientific Retreat was held at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort on November 13 - 14, 2015. We were pleased to have Jeffrey M. Rosen, PhD, Charles C. Bell Professor, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Baylor College of Medicine, who is an expert in developmental and hormonal regulation of mammary gland gene expression and breast cancer as the keynote speaker. For more event recaps and the 2015 Photo Gallery visit the Retreat Archive section of the site. The goals of the Retreat are to showcase exciting research which is currently performed in labs of WCRC members, to further enhance interaction, and foster collaborations. We put together a stimulating program in the area of women's cancer research, covering basic, clinical, and translational areas of investigations.

If you have any questions regarding the Retreat, please contact Steffi Oesterreich, PhD.
