The ultimate goal of any breast cancer research is cure and prevention. As the scope of BCRF funding has expanded, we have organized our projects dedicated to "Finding the Cure" into five main areas: Clinical Innovations
; Staying Healthy
; Clinical Trials
; and Path towards Personalized Medicine
, which defined by the National Cancer Institute as "a form of medicine that uses information about a person's genes, proteins, and environment to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease." While individualizing treatment has always been a goal in medical care, scientific technology has finally caught up to make that objective more attainable than ever before. There is also a group of studies called Focus on Metastasis
that aim to cure and prevent the spread of breast cancer.
"Finding the Cure" studies, in conjunction with the group of BCRF projects dedicated to "Finding the Cause," will help us achieve the goal of eradicating breast cancer in our lifetime.
