Breast Cancer Research

In addition to providing excellence in all facets of breast cancer care, the Dubin Breast Center’s mission includes tirelessly pursuing better outcomes for breast cancer patients. By housing multiple clinical services under one roof, the Breast Center was designed to foster interdisciplinary and translational research to help achieve this goal. Dubin Breast Center and Tisch Cancer Institute faculty members have a wide range of breast cancer research projects, including the following:

  • Providing a high-risk surveillance program for individuals at high risk for developing breast cancer
  • Identifying the causes of breast cancer
  • Studying the reasons for disparities in breast cancer treatment
  • Finding novel approaches to treating breast cancer
  • Understanding breast cancer dormancy
  • Finding new ways to prevent and diagnose breast cancer
  • Evaluating the safety and efficacy of new and existing breast cancer treatments through clinical trials

How to Participate in Research

Participation in clinical trials offers patients a chance to receive a new treatment that might otherwise be unavailable and opens the door to a means of continuously improving the standard of care for breast cancer patients. Our physicians work closely with partners in the pharmaceutical industry as well as cooperative groups through the National Cancer Institute such as Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology, Cancer and Leukemia Group B, American College of Radiology Imaging Network, and others to evaluate these new therapies in the setting of clinical trials.

Numerous studies are being conducted to examine breast cancer imaging, genetics, radiation, chemotherapy, surgery, prevention, and treatment disparities. Speak with your Dubin health care team if you have questions or interest regarding any of our current clinical trials.
