The BREAST-PREDICT team met with members of their Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) on the 11th of September 2015 in UCD. Approximately 45 researchers met with four out of seven members of the Scientific Advisory Board to discuss key developments from year two of the centre’s research programme and to gain advice on future plans. The Scientific Advisory Board members in attendance were Prof. Robert Clarke, Georgetown University, U.S.A.; Dr. Jason Carroll, Cambridge Research Institute, U.K; Prof. Richard Kennedy, Queen’s University Belfast, U.K; and Prof. Liam Murray, also from Queen’s University Belfast.
Ten researchers presented updates on the five different workpackages, sixteen early-stage researchers displayed posters and five researchers presented oral posters to the group. This was followed by an informative discussion session in which members of the Scientific Advisory Board provided feedback to the BREAST-PREDICT team. Overall this was a very enjoyable and productive meeting and we look forward to future discussions and feedback at the end of year three.
