Abstract:

We have made very significant progress since the last report two years towards achieving the objectives of this Center as set out in the aims of the original proposal. In response to the need to develop targeted approaches for the prevention and treatment of ER- breast cancer we have organized the COE into six integrated Projects P 1-6 that are supported by two Cores C1-2. These projects span epidemiology, pathology, functional genomics, cancer cell biology, preclinical drug development, and chemoprevention. The overall aim of the COE is to understand the causes and critical pathways underlying the development of ER- breast cancer in order to develop novel strategies for prevention and treatment.
