Grant Recipients

Through our annual fund-raising events (See Event Calendar), MWCABC has succeeded in awarding nearly $2.8 million in grants to breast cancer research, education programs and organizations. This accomplishment could only have been achieved with the generous support of our community.

Our past recipients include:

2013

  • Project to determine the mechanism by which breast cancer cells lose DNA methylation. The work is designed to allow for the identification of novel breast cancer drug targets.

  • Pre-clinical studies to test the effectiveness of semapimod in conjunction with paclitaxel on metastatic breast cancer tumors.

  • Study to isolate the mechanisms by which neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) are activated to kill cancer cells. This research aims to change the natural history of breast cancer by discovering the unique stimulants that drive neutrophil activation in breast cancer patients.

2012

  • Support research on a new microfluidic device to isolate circulating tumor cells and identify biomarkers to predict clinical response to chemotherapy drugs in metastatic breast cancer patients.

    Fund research targeting the tumor micorenvironment using copper depletion as an anti-angiogenesis agent.

  • Support a project examining the mechanism of the SCCRO gene in controlling the tumor and its microenvironment.
