Funded research

With each cycle of grant awards, we take another step toward our mission: to eliminate breast cancer by leading innovative research, communication, and collaboration in the California scientific and lay communities.

In 2016, the California Breast Cancer Research Program granted nearly $10 million in research awards that will advance our knowledge about the prevention, detection, treatment and community impact of breast cancer. These awards included grants supported entirely or in part by Californians who contributed to the California Breast Cancer Research Fund on their income tax form. The projects they supported include:

  • Preclinical Analysis of MAD28 in Inflammatory Breast Cancer
    Emmanuel Theodorakis, UCSD
  • Technologies for Augmented Reality Breast Surgery
    Bruce Daniel, Stanford University             
  • Preventing Tumor Progression in Women with High-Risk DCIS
    Thea Tlsty, UCSF
