Co-Chairs: Rabih Talhouk, Martine Bellanger, Sophie A. Lelièvre, and
Connie M. Weaver

Organized by the International Breast Cancer and Nutrition (IBCN) group

The goal of this symposium is to bring together global public health actors, advocates, and researchers on breast cancer prevention, to discuss: the impact of environmental factors such as foods, stress, exercise on the genome. The symposium will take us on a journey across disciplines to study different levels of gene – environment interactions. Concretely, we will explore the epigenetic mechanisms of gene expression control, health policy and practices, socioeconomic and cultural contexts in which these environmental factors come into play."

Breast cancer prevention is a global public health challenge that requires: utilization of the diversity of diet: environment and epigenomic pool globally; a multidisciplinary approach: biology, epidemiology, medicine, nutrition, social sciences and communication, education, and public policy; contributions from scientists, clinicians, and advocates; sustained international effort in research and action.

Abstract submission is open.
There are slots available for oral presentation for scientist and research trainees.
Abstracts are limited to 300 words and due by June 15, 2013 to be considered for a presentation.

Loss Of Y Chromosome Increases Risk Of Alzheimer’s
Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers. These new findings by researchers at Uppsala University could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
