At the IU Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center, our research is shaping the global understanding of breast cancer.
The more than 20 breast cancer physicians and scientists within our Vera Bradley Foundation Center for Breast Cancer Research are not afraid of a challenge. Their goal is to cure the most aggressive forms of this disease. The road to a cure starts with learning how and why breast cancer develops, how it behaves in women at all life’s stages and how it uniquely affects women from different racial and ethnic groups. We seek better outcomes for patients by exploring the genetics that drive tumors, learning what makes tumors more susceptible to treatment and devising therapies to help defeat breast cancer while avoiding toxic side effects.
This vital work is made possible by your gifts. Your contributions help us save the lives of women who mean so much to their families, their friends, and their communities.
