Other Cancer
To date, we have focused primarily on ovarian, breast, and head and neck cancers. We plan to expand work on other cancers.

How we’ve made a difference

  1. Worked with the International Prostate Cancer Association Consortium (PRACTICAL) and the Subang Aging Men’s Study to identify a number of genetic loci associated with increased risk to prostate cancer.
  2. Worked with investigators at the Institute of Cancer Research to show that a blood test screening for prostate cancer is useful for its detection in people with inherited alterations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.
