Vera Bradley Foundation Center for Breast Cancer Research

A vibrant research community targeting hard-to-treat breast cancers

The Vera Bradley Foundation Center is home to our multidisciplinary team of research physicians and laboratory scientists who are pushing the boundaries of modern medicine to spread hope and find a cure.

We’re learning how and why breast cancer develops, how it behaves at different stages of life, and how it uniquely affects different racial and ethnic groups.

We’re creating new technologies, crafting highly customized therapies, and helping women avoid the life-altering side effects that often result from standard treatment.

Because we know that #ResearchCuresCancer.

Our research team is relentlessly pursuing critical advancements that have and will continue to change the face of breast cancer forever.
