This course focuses on breast cancers both on a biological and a clinical point of view. It will cover the biology of breast cancers from stem cell biology to metastatic process encompassing special courses on diagnostic of the disease, the state -of art of treatment with presentation of clinical trials and modalities of follow-up. A special focus will emphasize the recent data on oestrogen resistance, basal-like and hereditary breast cancers, their new therapeutic strategies and what next generation sequencing provides in breast cancer biology and clinical management.
