The October NYC Symposium and Awards Luncheon showcases BCRF as an engine that propels promising research and an empowering resource for worldwide research efforts. It is at this event that millions of dollars are announced as being directed toward grants to over 235 BCRF-funded investigators whose research projects are aimed at prevention and a cure for breast cancer.

The Foundation’s loyal donors, corporate supporters, and fully funded researchers come together to celebrate the game-changing financial investment that BCRF continues to make in the breast cancer research arena. Each year, one BCRF grantee is honored with the Jill Rose Award for outstanding research excellenceand and the Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award is presented to a noble individual for their commitment and passion for the cause. 

At this year’s event, the Jill Rose Award will be presented to Joan S. Brugge, PhD, of Harvard Medical School, for her distinguished work that has advanced our understanding of the molecular and cell biology of breast cancer. We are also thrilled that the Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award will be presented to Tory Burch, in recognition of her leadership and commitment to BCRF’s mission of eradicating breast cancer.

This year's Luncheon & Symposium will be hosted by journalist, author and breast cancer survivor Joan Lunden.
