Funded research

With each cycle of grant awards, we take another step toward our mission: to eliminate breast cancer by leading innovative research, communication, and collaboration in the California scientific and lay communities.

In 2019, the California Breast Cancer Research Program granted over $4.5 million in research awards that will advance our knowledge about the prevention, detection, treatment and community impact of breast cancer. These awards included grants supported entirely or in part by Californians who contributed to the California Breast Cancer Research Fund on their income tax form. The projects they supported are:

  • Breast Cancer Risks from California’s Gold Mining Legacy
      Joanne Hild, Sierra Streams Institute and Peggy Reynolds, UCSF
  • Non-contrast MRI Breast Cancer Screening
      Rebecca Rakow-Penner, UCSD
  • Unraveling the Mutatgenic Mechanisms of Breast Cancer
      Remi Buisson, UCI
