To cure breast cancer, we must know it well.
It starts with understanding the genetics of normal breast tissue, what goes wrong, and how it drives the disease. Then, we can use those insights to tailor treatments to a woman’s disease—and spare her lingering side effects. We also need to grasp how breast cancer impacts women at different stages of their lives.
More than 30 physicians and scientists help Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center reshape our understanding of breast cancer. This elite group makes our Vera Bradley Foundation Center for Breast Cancer Research a place where science becomes solutions—for women at risk, those fighting the disease, and those who have survived.
This progress starts with generous supporters like you.
Your gifts serve as vital funding for our talented researchers to strike out and pursue bold ideas. You enable them to gather data, launch clinical trials, and hopefully change how we prevent, detect, and treat breast cancer.
Your contributions make new discoveries possible.
