Identification Of Genes In Involved In The Predisposition, Initiation And Progression Of Breast And Ovarian Cancer
Grant number: 1041975 | Funding period: 2013 - 2018
Our knowledge of the number and nature of the genes involved in breast and ovarian cancer is limited. To rapidly define the critical breast and ovarian cancer-causing genes my laboratory uses an integrative genomics approach whereby information from several genome-wide platforms are combined. A key initiative that will underpin much of our work is Lifepool, which is a unique cohort of 100,000 Victorian women attending BreastScreen that will support a range of research into breast cancer.
