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 2017, the California Breast Cancer Research Program granted over $7.5 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:

  • Latino Community Education Tool on Hereditary Breast Cancer
     Ysabel Duron, Latinas Contra Cancer and Laura Fejerman, UCSF
  • Women Worker Biomonitoring Collaborative (WWBC)
     Heather Buren and Erin Carrera, Breast Cancer Prevention Partners and Rachel Morello-Frosch, UC Berkeley             
  • A New Targeted Therapy for Breast Cancer
     Xiaohua Wu, The Scripps Research Institute
