Research & Education
The Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Center at Roswell Park, provides comprehensive, individualized care to patients with premalignant and malignant breast disease. Dissemination of information and resources, counseling and emotional support are essential components of this program.
Investigators in the hospital and in the laboratory explore how breast cancer develops, devise new methods to diagnose it in its earliest, most curable stages and collaborate on, develop and test new and innovative treatments for all stages of the disease.
RPCI has taken a leadership role in the breast guideline development with the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and is involved in the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project. RPCI also participates in most of the national trials (e.g., the STAR study) to improve the prevention, detection, and treatment of breast cancers.
