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 2014, the California Breast Cancer Research Program granted over $4.5 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:

  • Targeting Breast Cancer Metastasis to Bone
    Christopher Contag, Stanford University
  • Intervening on Reproductive Health in Young Survivors
    Irene Su, UC San Diego             
  • Exploring Rural Disparities in Breast Cancer Mortality
    Terry Uyeki, Humboldt State University and Brenda Elvine-Kreis, Humboldt Community Breast Health Project
  • CT guided DOT for Breast Cancer Imaging
    Changqing Li, UC Merced
  • Gut Microbiota in Association with Chemotherapy Treatment
    Anna Wu, University of Southern California
  • Persistent Organic Pollutants and Mammographic Density
