Breast Cancer Research Foundation Precision Prevention Initiative


Event details

Date 16.01.2023
Category Call for proposal

The overarching goal of this initiative is to fuel innovation and accelerate breast cancer prevention research by challenging the research community to think boldly; to explore multidisciplinary approaches to get the answers in less time, utilize new technologies or identify new ways to examine available data, and to build or enhance infrastructure, resources, and tools that will facilitate innovation in prevention research for years to come.

With this RFA, we are soliciting applications in three primary areas for impact:

  1. Risk Assessment and Stratification
  2. Biomarkers
  3. Interventions

At BCRF, we want to create a future in which women can benefit from the wide range of innovative strategies that can propel prevention as well as treatment, with advances in individual risk assessment, surveillance, and risk reduction using the tools of precision medicine, artificial intelligence, epidemiology, and immunology to reduce the incidence of breast cancer with all possible speed.
