THE LANDSCAPE OF CANCER GENES AND ASSOCIATIONS WITH PROGNOSIS IN BREAST CANCER DIAGNOSED IN PREMENOPAUSAL WOMEN
Grant number: 1084531 | Funding period: 2015 - 2017
Using state of the art technology, the purpose of this project is understand the implications of known cancer mutations in breast cancer diagnosed in premenopausal ER-positive breast cancer. Mutations are abnormalities in the DNA of genes that can provide a signal for uncontrolled growth, a hallmark of cancer. The unique aspect of this project is use of tissue samples from patients who were diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age. This information will help us develop new treatments.
