Dr. Sara Hurvitz Discusses the Latest Developments in Breast Cancer Research

44 weeks ago

#FeaturedResearcher! Meet Dr. Hurvitz! She is Assistant Professor of Hematology/Oncology at #UCLA and a researcher at JCCC. Dr. Hurvitz is conducting clinical trials in breast cancer treatment. In 2007, she designed and developed the TRIO B07 study to better understand why some HER2+ breast cancers do not respond to HER2-targeted therapy and to try to understand if there are biological markers (such as proteins) that could be identified to select patients who are most likely to respond to this therapy. Dr. Hurvitz's long-term goal is to increase the measurable cure rate for Stage IV breast cancer from 2-3 to more than 10 percent. Thank you, Dr. Hurvitz, for your efforts in the fight against cancer! #STOPCANCER

STOP CANCER Grant Recipient (2003), Dr. Laird-Offringa, Receives Significant Funding to Support Lung #CancerResearch - The Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program has awarded a $495,000 grant to Ite Laird-Offringa, PhD, associate professor of surgery and associate dean for graduate affairs (PhD programs) at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. Laird-Offringa and her team are investigating how certain genetic variants increase lung cancer predisposition and are conducting this research in partnership with Bravo Medical Magnet High School. This investigation could lead to new methods to predict and mitigate the risk for lung cancer. "We are so excited to be funded by the Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program," Laird-Offringa said. "Through this grant, tobacco tax dollars will go not only to investigating the genetic basis of lung cancer but also to community outreach and education through our relationship with Bravo Medical Magnet High School. Congratulations, Ite!
