New York University Receives Two Grants Relating to Breast Cancer Research

The Langone Medical Center at New York University has received two grants for breast cancer research from the Avon Foundation for Women. One grant will support genetic research on cells from the breasts of premenopausal women. William L. Carroll, the Julie and Edward J. Minskoff Professor of Pediatrics and director of the NYU Cancer Institute, explained that “understanding the genetic basis of cancer is a critical component of ultimately identifying ways to treat — and ultimately eradicate — the disease.”

The second grant will fund a program to improve communication between breast cancer patients and health care providers. The program is targeted mainly at Latina and Chinese women.
