    Identifying new genes that underpin breast cancer risk

    A/Prof. Juliet French proposes to use a comprehensive, unbiased approach to measure the ability of genes to promote breast cancer. It is anticipated that the outcome of these experiments will enhance the understanding of genes that induce breast cancer susceptibility and lead to the identification of new targets that will be used in future studies for developing of new breast cancer risk reduction medications and treatments for breast cancer.
