Research Corner

A recent Susan G. Komen® – funded study has identified a previously unknown gene mutation associated with poor outcomes in ER+ breast cancer.

“Understanding how ER+ breast cancers develop and recur, and how to stop them, is absolutely vital,” said Victoria Wolodzko, SVP, Mission for Komen. “This work has the potential to transform care for patients facing ER+ disease at all stages, which will contribute significantly to our efforts to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by half by 2026.” Learn more here.
