While current therapies can be effective, treatment fails for many women with breast cancer. They go on to experience incurable relapses due to limited treatment options. The breast cancers that are most likely to relapse tend to affect younger women, amplifying impacts on the individual and families.

The number of women who will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime.
The approximate number of Americans diagnosed with breast cancer each year.
The percentage of breast cancer patients who relapse and die after standard therapy.
We still don’t fully understand why standard breast cancer therapy fails. Recent advances in technologies and artificial intelligence enable us to study breast cancer relapse with clarity like never before. We want to create and analyze an atlas of changes that occur in tumors that relapse to find new treatments.More research
Our leadership embodies our scientific rigour and clinical excellence. Drs. Lupien and Cescon combine over 30 years of experience in breast cancer research. In 2016, they joined forces to build a dream team of 10 world-experts and their staff (>100). They are set on finding a cure for breast cancer relapse.About the team
