The goal of this symposium is to bring together global public health actors, advocates, clinicians and researchers with an interest in breast cancer prevention to discuss resources necessary to conduct primary prevention research. The symposium will take us on a journey across disciplines for interactions at the interface of biology, medicine, ethics and policies. Concretely, we will discuss the new types of biobanks and databases in nutrition and epigenetics that are needed to study cancer risk, notably to design prevention interventions and identify biomarkers of risk, taking into account public policy and practices, and socioeconomic and cultural contexts in which environmental factors leading to cancer 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.
