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.

Researchers at Fred Hutch Identify Cancer-Spreading Molecule

Posted by Robert Larkin on Fri, Jun 05, 2015

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most rapidly spreading cancers known to man, which translates to seriously staggering death rates. According to the American Cancer Society, for all stages of pancreatic cancer combined, the one-year relative survival rate is 20%, and the five-year rate is 6%, in part because more than 80% of patient tumors have spread beyond the pancreas by the time of diagnosis. In most cases, the cancer has already spread to the point where surgical removal is impossible. (Image: Test Molecule; Los Angeles Mission College)

However, when Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation gives you millions in research funding, now you can help cure childhood cancer. Thanks to a little girl who once made lemonade to raise money for childhood cancer research, two UC San Francisco faculty members are among researchers being nationally acknowledged for their work in pediatric oncology.
