Dr Geeta Patel’s PhD studentship, funded by Breast Cancer Campaign and supervised by Professor Diana Harcourt at the University of the West of England, is one of very few studies that have looked into the breast cancer experiences of Black and Minority Ethnic women. Read more about her research here.
The Generations Walk was first held in 1998, when 80 people gathered to walk across Hampstead Heath and raise money to fund breast cancer research. Our Chief Executive, Baroness Delyth Morgan, has written a message to everyone who has been part of making the walk such a fantastic success over the years.
Last week, Campaign-funded scientists Drs John Marshall and Kate Moore received national news coverage for their work on discovering a new way to find and target an aggressive type of breast cancer, using the molecule αvβ6. We hope that this work can now be taken to clinical trials and tested in patients, to eventually help more women and men to overcome and outlive breast cancer.
