We are dedicated to finding a cure for all types of breast cancer.  We do this by researching mutated and altered genes that are responsible for the development and progression of breast cancer, as well as genes that lead to drug resistance.  We are also actively involved with the Hopkins Breast Cancer Program’s clinical research team to translate our work into clinical practice and patient care.
