2011 Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation Research Grant

1 year grant, awarded to Dr. Shridar Ganesan, Rutgers University

Project Summary

Normal cells carry two copies of the BRCA1 gene, one from the individual’s mother and one from their father. In some individuals, one copy of the BRCA1 gene has a mutation that renders it inactive or nonfunctional.  This gene variation is passed from parents to children, and is therefore called a hereditary mutation.
