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 2021, the California Breast Cancer Research Program granted over $4 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:

  • Evaluating a multi-component oncofertility care intervention for rural young breast cancer survivors  
    Helen Palomino, Cancer Resource Center of the Desert; Hui-Chun Su, UC San Diego
  • A fiber-diverse, anti-inflammatory diet and aerobic exercise reduce risk of breast cancer recurrence
    William McCarthy, UCLA
  • Targeted therapy to reverse triple negative breast cancer health disparities and boost immunotherapy
    Diana Marquez-Garban, UCLA
