Researchers study processes that cause breast cancer recurrence, spread

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes. Recurrence and spread are the biggest contributors to the death of these women.

That’s why Susan Waltz, professor in the UC department of cancer biology, is teaming up with other researchers at UC, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Kentucky to study the processes that cause these events to occur – and ways to both target and stop them.

The National Cancer Institute recently awarded this collaborative team a $500,000 yearly grant for the next five years to do just that.
