New Cancer Treatment Breakthrough at U of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Dec 04, 2017

The National Cancer Institute awards the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign roughly $5 million in research funding each year. This funding supports a number of cancer research projects conducted at the university. One such project is a ground breaking study of nanoparticles that researchers designed to specifically bind to a protein that marks the surface of breast cancer stem cells and destroy them. These elusive and rare cells can cause cancer to come back years after the tumor has been treated.

USC Receives $12M to Study Genetic Variants in Breast Cancer

Posted by Laura Braden on Thu, Aug 11, 2016

According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lives, making it the second most common cancer for American women. However, breast cancer does not affect all women equally. Past studies have shown that women of African descent with breast cancer die at a higher rate than white women. Researchers at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine have received a grant of $12 million from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to study the disparities in breast cancer in women.

Breast Cancer Research Well-Funded Nationally: UNC Develops Test Kit

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Oct 18, 2013

A laboratory testing kit developed at the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Developed by Chuck Perou, PhD and professor of genetics and pathology, the testing kit estimates the risk of breast cancer relapse even in cases of anti-hormone treatment. According to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, other scientists who worked with Perou include Dr. Joel Parker and Dr. Maggie Cheang at the University of North Carolina.
