Abstract : This document represents the annual report for our Breast Cancer Center Support Grant. Our grant consists of five areas, three projects and two cores. Projects include: Project 1 - Impact of Genetic Testing for Breast Cancer Susceptibility; Project 2 - A Coordinated Approach to Breast Cancer Diagnosis; and Project 3 - Development of Novel Antiangiogenic Therapies in Metastatic Breast Cancer. These projects are supported by Core 1 - Patient Accession Core, and Core 2 - Cancer Clinical and Economic Outcomes Evaluations Core. During the project period, each of the cores have been fully functional, and each of the projects continues to meet its objectives. Detailed summaries of the work in progress is provided in each of the project areas. Taken together, we believe that these projects, supported by their appropriate cores, have been successful in meeting their statements of work, and in fulfilling their scientific objectives during the granting period.
