SAVE THE DATE - 2017 Annual Amelia Project Conference

Mark your calendar for the annual Amelia Project conference scheduled for Saturday, March 4, 2017. The Catherine Peachey Fund, a member of the Heroes Foundation Family, will sponsor the event at the Indiana University Kokomo campus.

We encourage you to forward this on to your colleagues and current and new associates who may be interested in breast cancer research. We also ask you to locate and invite junior scientists from your institution either within your department or associated with other departments who may benefit from this meeting.

The Amelia Project is designed to bring together scientists and clinicians working on breast cancer. The meeting has a long history of bringing together institutions, fostering collaboration across institutional boundaries, enhancing research through collegial sharing and encouraging and educating pre- and post-doctoral candidates. Metastasis is one of the major themes of the conference this year.
