Susan M Love, M.D., M.B.A has dedicated her professional life to the eradication of breast cancer. As President of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, she focuses on finding the cause of breast cancer by democratizing, inspiring, conducting and facilitating research.
CBCRP Advocacy and Research
Advocates made breast cancer research a priority in California and can make a very real contribution to all studies. This panel of researches and advocates will describe how including breast cancer and community advocates in identifying research questions, designing and implementing studies and disseminating results has contributed to the advancement of our knowledge in this field.
CBCRP Early Life Exposures
Factors influencing the maturing breast can affect the risk of developing breast cancer later in life. The speakers in this session will discuss the biological, environmental and social exposures that can be contributing to breast cancer risk.
CBCRP IBCERCC Report
The Interagency Breast Cancer and Environment Research Coordinating Committee (IBCERCC) released a seminal report in January 2013 that outlined a new path for breast cancer prevention research. This session will report the IBCERCC's findings and recommendations, and chart the future directions of breast cancer research at the state and federal levels.
CBCRP What We're Learning From You
Large population studies are critical tools in understanding how breast cancer develops and determining what we can do to prevent it. The speakers will discuss ongoing studies for understanding the origins of breast cancer and ways attendees can get involved to further our knowledge.
CBCRP Risk and Survival
One major area of investigation is exploring why some groups are more successful at surviving breast cancer than others. This session will present research on clinical and socio-cultural survivorship issues.
