BREAST CANCER RESEARCH
Our knowledge of the origins of cancer and the discovery that breast cancer is not one but many diseases continues to advance diagnosis, prevention, treatment and approaches.
The role that genetics plays in breast cancer has been uncovered and there's a deeper understanding of how lifestyle influences breast cancer risk.
Further understand how to harness the body’s own immune system to fight cancer with the right combination of therapies.
Scientists have contributed significantly to the development of precision medicine and individualized therapies, resulting in better, more effective treatments and fewer side effects. Treatment is no longer a one-size-fits all and fewer patients with low-risk breast cancer are overtreated.
Researchers were critical players in the breakthrough of biomarkers, unique molecular signals that can help predict how tumors will respond to certain treatments and the possibility of cancer returning. New methods lead to early stage detection and more personalized treatment that will all lead to a cure. Investigators are working diligently to uncover why certain breast cancer spread (metastasis) or recur and will lead to an end of the disease.
