We are pleased to announce that the Sixth International Symposium on Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer will take place from May 10 to 13, 2016, at the Centre Mont-Royal in Montréal, Canada.

Presented by the Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Foundation in collaboration with the Program in Cancer Genetics at McGill University, this biennial Symposium will once again offer an exciting and innovative program for clinical researchers, genetic counsellors, and other specialists in the field, as well as for primary care providers who may want to know more about hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and the susceptibility genes BRCA1 and 2.

Some of the finest researchers and world-renowned experts from Canada, the USA, Australia and Europe will present stimulating lectures to inform, educate and motivate Symposium attendees.  We are especially pleased that this year's Marla Miller Memorial Lecture which traditionally closes the Symposium, will be given by Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA
