A great piece on longtime BCRF researcher Dr. Lewis Cantley who is leading a national effort targeting triple-negative breast cancer and ovarian cancer with a novel drug combination.

Last week, in an article published in Nature Reviews, BCRF investigator Dr. Martine Piccart cited results from the some of the most exciting clinical trials from 2015. These academic-led clinical trials shed light on important issues relating to cancer care in both early stage and metastatic breast cancer.

In a recent workshop BCRF helped organize, experts in cell biology and engineering came together to begin to identify ways in which the analyses of single cells and cell–to–cell interactions could lead to better treatments for cancer. The meeting represents a key initiative for BCRF: to foster collaborations to advance breast cancer research.
Recent advances in emerging technologies, such as nanotechnology and microfluidics, have fueled new discoveries and enhanced our understanding of cancer on the single cell level. Each tumor is made up billions of cells that vary from one another.

“Clinical trials often provide access to treatment options that are otherwise unavailable and are vital to informing research in prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Reducing this disparity for low-income patients would improve fair access to trials.” – BCRF researcher Dr. Dawn Hershman.

A recently published study authored by Dr. Hershman demonstrated that low-income patients were consistently less likely to participate in clinical trials.
A major challenge in identifying ways to improve breast health is lack of participation in clinical trials.

In a recently published study, BCRF researcher Dr. Mien-Chie Hung and colleagues revealed that PARP inhibitors – an emerging class of drugs being studied in cancer clinical trials – may be enhanced by combining them with inhibitors targeting an oncogene known as c-MET which is overexpressed in many cancers.

BCRF researcher Dr. Walter Willett is the lead author on this study that suggests women who eat more high-fiber foods during adolescence and young adulthood may have significantly lower breast cancer risk than those who eat less dietary fiber in their youth.
Eating fruits, vegetables, grains and beans high in fiber can help keep us healthy. A study finds yet another benefit: Women on a high-fiber diet had a lower risk of developing breast cancer.

In a new study, BCRF researcher Dr. Andrew Ewald and colleagues confirmed a new finding on how cancer spreads. Their work revealed that during metastasis cancer cells don’t travel alone; instead they migrate through the body in cellular clusters, like gangs.
It has long been thought that cancer metastasizes, or spreads, when a single cancer cell escapes from the original tumor, travels through the bloodstream and sets up shop in distant organs. However, a growing body of evidence suggests that these bad actors don’t travel alone; instead they migrate through the body in cellular clusters, like gangs.

Big congrats to BCRF researcher Dr. Mary-Claire King who was recently honored with the prestigious Szent-Györgyi Prize for Progress in Cancer Research!

A leading mind in cancer genetics, Dr. King was the first to demonstrate that a genetic predisposition for breast cancer exists, as the result of inherited mutations in the gene she named BRCA1.

In collaboration with oncologists, physician scientists, physicists, and mathematicians, BCRF investigators Peter Kuhn, Larry Norton and Elizabeth Comen analyzed over 400 patients with a history of metastatic disease. Together they evaluated the different places in the body that breast cancer spreads over time and created a unique map of tumor spread.
Metastasis– when breast cancer cells leave the breast and spread to other sites in the body– is the major cause of mortality from breast cancer.

Our mission is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research. 


We believe research—and research alone—has the power to bring an end to cancer. We know what needs to be done, and we have more than 200 researchers urgently working on solutions to one of the world’s greatest problems.


Until the number of deaths from breast cancer is zero, we will not stop. Join us, and help fuel the research of tomorrow needed to save lives today. Everyone can be part of the solution. We are all part of the cure.


The end of cancer begins with you.
