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 2015, the California Breast Cancer Research Program granted over $6 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:

  • Breastfeeding to Reduce Breast Cancer in Young Mothers
     Alison Chopel and Danielle Soto, Public Health Institute and Brighter Beginnings
  • Impact of Reducing Chemical Exposure to the Human Breast
     Polly Marshall and Shanaz Dairkee, Breast Cancer Over Time and California Pacific Medical Research Institute             
  • Identification of Novel Breast Cancer Therapeutic Antibodies
     Gary Johanning, SRI International
  • Localized Probability of Mammographic Masking
     John Shepherd, UCSF
  • STOP Heart Disease in Breast Cancer Survivors
     Marc Goodman, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
