We are pleased to announce the 1st Zing Molecular and Cellular Basis of Breast Cancer Risk and Prevention conference will be taking place in Cairns, Australia in August 2015.
The conference aims to bring together experts in breast cancer risk and prevention, stem cell biologists, breast physiology, cancer biology, and genetic epidemiology to collectively tackle important issues in the biology, breast cancer initiation and prevention. The conference will focus on outstanding questions and recent discoveries the mammary niche, involution, heterogeneity, and new genetic discoveries defining risk. Experts in these fields are asked to share their most recent findings and discuss emerging challenges with the goal of stimulating new and creative thinking. Short talks will be chosen from the submitted abstracts.
The goals for the program are to inspire important insights, energise new scientists and foster creative collaborations that will deepen our understanding of the molecular events underlying breast cancer initiation and accelerate the development of targeted prevention and early detection strategies.

Pullman Cairns International
17th August 2015 – 20th August 2015
Pullman Cairns International is located in the central business district of Cairns and overlooks the harbour and mountain hinterland. This 321 room hotel is ideally positioned to take advantage of all the city has to offer.
All the bedrooms are over 40 square meters and contain full amenities; while Coco’s Restaurant, located on the Lobby level, is widely regarded as one of the best restaurants in Cairns. This venue boasts excellent conference facilities which will ensure you can absorb the scientific content in comfort, while providing the ideal location for networking and discussion.
Abstracts may be submitted for 2 seperate categories – talk or poster.
Talk – At each conference, several presentation slots are available for the chairs to fill following review of the abstracts submitted. Normally, this equates to a 15 minute presentation although in some circumstances more time may be allocated. This offers a fantastic opportunity to present your research to a distinguished audience of your peers and we encourage delegates from all levels of academic or industrial backgrounds to compete for places.
If you wish to be considered for one of these slots, please select the ‘Talk’ option.
Poster – We also run a ‘Poster Session’ at each conference. During this session every attendee is encouraged to display an portrait-oriented A0 sized (1189×841 mm – 46.8×33.1 inch) poster depicting their research. Delegates are free to view and discuss the content with the authors in a relaxed environment while offering fantastic networking opportunities, collaborations to be developed, ideas to be exchanged and many other advantages for those taking part.
When printing your poster, please ensure it does not exceed A0 in size and be portrait in orientation. If measurements exceed this size, we cannot guarantee that your poster will be displayed.
Further, a ‘Poster Highlight’ session in the main programme allows for several of the Poster Abstract authors to be offered short presentations – usually 3-5 minutes. This presents an opportunity for authors to briefly surmise the core points of their work in a short presentation to all conference attendees. We believe this dual mode of presentation (oral plus poster presentation) will contribute to a better communication between poster presenters and conference delegates.
If you wish to be included in the poster session and considered for one of the ‘Poster Highlight’ slots, please select the ‘Poster’ option.
