Breast Cancer Center of Excellence
The Breast Cancer Center of Excellence (BCOE) of the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Wake Forest University concentrates its research efforts on four specific themes:
- Biology of breast carcinogenesis and malignant progression
- Analysis of large data sets (“omics”) for identification of breast cancer predictive markers
- Quality of life and survivorship issues
- Novel imaging and therapeutics
Collaborative Breast Cancer Research
The BCOE facilitates collaborative research among basic scientists, public health scientists and clinical researchers that addresses important questions regarding breast cancer etiology, pathogenesis, screening and diagnosis, therapy, outcome, and survivorship. Members of all 4 Programs of the Cancer Center participate in BCCOE activities; the BCCOE supports the activities and goals of the Cancer Center Programs.
Breast Cancer Care for Patients
The clinical arm of our research is managed through the Breast Care Center, which enables the Breast Cancer Center of Excellence to initiate a variety of translational research projects. Translational research is aimed at applying what is learned in research to better treat and diagnose patients.
