Grants fund critical research to relegate metastatic breast cancer to a chronic manageable disease.
While most people are aware of primary breast cancer, many forget that it is the metastasis that is the patient’s ultimate malice. Dr. Josh Neman, PhD is Assistant Professor of Research in the Department of Neurological Surgery at Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California.
Dr. Rajeev Samant explains the mechanism of metastasis, some research history that has deepened our understanding of metastasis, and some possible future directions for research. Dr. Samant [Department of Pathology, Scientist UAB CCC, Birmingham, AL.] leads a research program focused on understanding and intervening in metastatic breast cancer.
METAvivor is thrilled to announce the award of four research grants totaling $320,000 to fund scientific research to enhance understanding of metastatic breast cancer and to develop much needed therapeutic options to combat this complicated disease. This is the fourth year METAvivor has awarded research grants.
