Funded research

With each cycle of grant awards, we take another step toward our mission: to eliminate breast cancer by leading innovative research, communication, and collaboration in the California scientific and lay communities.

In 2023, the California Breast Cancer Research Program granted over $4 million in research awards that will advance our knowledge about the prevention, detection, treatment and community impact of breast cancer. These awards included grants supported entirely or in part by Californians who contributed to the California Breast Cancer Research Fund on their income tax form. The projects they supported are:

  • Arming macrophages to eliminate triple negative breast cancer stem cells  
    David Cheresh, UC, San Diego
  • Signs of early life exposure in midlife to prevent breast cancer inequities
    Barbara Cohn and Shahid Akilah, Public Health Institute
