Finding a therapy for triple negative breast cancer patients


Project Description

Triple negative breast cancers are a poor prognosis breast cancer with limited therapeutic options as they do not express estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors or Her2. Recent clinical studies have shown that women who have triple negative breast cancers, but also express the alternate estrogen receptor, ERβ, respond well to Tamoxifen.

We will use our mouse model of triple negative breast cancer, engineered to express ERβ, to determine how Tamoxifen exerts is benefits to these patients. This project will involve RNA sequencing of tumours.
