Understanding The Clinical Significance Of Tumour Genomic Architecture And Host Immune Response In Breast Cancer
Grant number: 1094388 | Funding period: 2015 - 2017
This study uses sophisticated DNA sequencing technologies to help patients and their doctors better understand and treat breast cancer. It also tries to understand how the cancer DNA may change over time, and if this is important to how the cancer is treated. In addition, it looks for a link between the DNA changes in a tumour and the anti-tumour immune response, which may help identify patients that could benefit from immunotherapy in the future.
