Advancements in breast cancer therapies

YOU FUNDED IT! Washington University medical oncologists at Siteman Cancer Center Ron Bose, MD, PhD, and Cynthia Ma, MD, PhD, along with their teams, are conducting research that may lead to better therapies for some breast cancer patients. They have been awarded a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to support such research. Drs. Ma & Bose received a 2012 and 2016 Pedal-funded grant (respectively) to fund this important research.

Featured Project

Funded in 2016
Principal Investigator:
Jeffrey Bednarski, M.D., Ph.D.
Goal: We have identified a novel mechanism that controls surface receptor signaling in immune cells. Our goals are to understand how this signaling circuit is coordinated to direct early B cell development and how corruption of this pathway leads to leukemia. We expect that these studies will provide important insights into the development of leukemia and will identify novel therapeutic targets in pediatric ALL.
