*** cancer detect prev ***
The past decade has seen rapid growth of research into the prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer. Screening studies have been met with mixed results and the newly identified putative precursor lesions within the distal fallopian tube have become well accepted. This conference is an outreach of the Department of Defense-sponsored ovarian cancer research consortium on early molecular changes associated with disease. This symposium will bring together leading researchers to discuss progress made toward prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer. Only through understanding the origins of ovarian cancer is progress likely to be made in these important areas.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
Understand the current molecular approaches to prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer
Obtain an update on the latest molecular findings implicating the distal fallopian tube as the site of origin for most ovarian cancer
Learn how current laboratory research will impact future prevention and treatment
