Breast cancer is the most common malignancy that develops in women, responsible for the highest cancer-related death rates. While the prognosis is good if the cancer is limited to the breast; once a patient has developed metastatic disease they are essentially incurable.

The overall aim of the project is to further characterize the role of these miRNAs in TNBC. Specifically, we aim:

  1. To determine the function of the identified miRNAs in the growth and invasiveness of breast cancer cells.
     
  2. To determine if the miRNAs can alter the response to of breast cancer to anti-cancer therapies
