Symposium and Awards Luncheon

New York, NY 10019

The annual NYC Symposium and Awards Luncheon, held each October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, showcases BCRF as an engine propelling research forward, faster.  The highly-anticipated event honors BCRF-funded investigators—many of whom will be in attendance—for their devotion to ending breast cancer and their trailblazing scientific inquiry.  The Foundation’s loyal donors, corporate supporters, and investigators come together under one roof to celebrate the game-changing financial investment BCRF continues to make in the cancer research arena.  At the Symposium, a panel of experts discuss topical issues across the fields of prevention, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship, and field questions from the audience.  The Luncheon following serves as the formal announcement of research grants for the upcoming year. 

In 2019, BCRF will honor Dr. Eric Winer with the Jill Rose Award for Scientific Excellence for his outstanding contributions as a clinician-scientist that have revolutionized the landscape of breast cancer treatment.  Another of BCRF’s highest honors, the Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award, will be presented to Vera Wang in recognition of her enduring dedication to BCRF and her profound philanthropic spirit.
