Common Genomic Variants And Familial Breast Cancer
Grant number: 1023698 | Funding period: 2012 - 2015
Breast Cancer is a common disease with up to 20% of cases associated with a family history. This project aims to assess the contribution of recently identified risk associated genomic variants and rare predisposition genes to the heritability of familial breast cancer. The project will also assess the experience of clinicians and patients as we aim to use this information to help improve the process of risk assessment and genetic counselling in the specialist Familial Cancer Centres.
