“Strategies for Early Detection of Biologically Aggressive Breast Cancer: Epidemiology, Biomarkers, and Engineering”


Over 90% of breast cancer is cured; yet there remain highly aggressive breast cancers that develop rapidly and are extremely difficult to treat, much less prevent. Breast cancers that rapidly develop between breast imaging are called “interval cancers”. Currently we are not successful in identifying premalignant breast lesions with aggressive biological potential. Here we outline strategies, targets, and technology to identify high-risk breast lesions before they become invasive.
