More About the Research

"While triple negative breast cancer generally responds well to chemotherapy after surgery, it tends to come back. More than 50 percent of triple negative breast cancers overexpress a molecule called epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), which is recognized as contributing to poor prognosis.

This study will further examine how to target EGFR to advance the understanding of this aggressive disease and to move towards developing a potential targeted treatment for this disease.”
