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 2018, the California Breast Cancer Research Program granted nearly $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 are:

  • Adipose-Rich Microenvironment in Breast Cancer
      Fahumiya Samad, San Diego Biomedical Research Institute
  • Metformins in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Immunotherapy
     Richard Pietras, UCLA
  • Physical Activity Intervention for Young Cancer Survivors
      Shari Hartman, UCSD and Stori Nagel, Haus of Volta
  • Reducing Latina Women’s Exposure to Cleaning Chemicals
      Norma Morga, Clinica de Salud del Valle de Salinas and Kim Harley, UC Berkeley
