Imagine a future where we understood the root cause of breast cancer, could detect it early, and treat it effectively using personalized medicine. The Breast Cancer Survival Project, led by Dr. Mildred Acevedo-Duncan in the USF College of Arts and Sciences, is striving to make this a reality by identifying the proteins responsible for breast cancer cell survival and developing specialized inhibitors to stop cancer in its tracks.
It’s exciting to think that research conducted in USF labs could have a big impact on how we treat and prevent breast cancer. For tens of thousands of women across the globe diagnosed with breast cancer, the Breast Cancer Survival Project gives hope that current and future generations will have the most promising treatment methods. Your generous support enables cancer patients to receive the best treatment for their specific cancer.
