"ICRP is a great opportunity to meet with other funding organizations and develop important partnerships to progress cancer research. After conversations that began at an ICRP meeting, Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, has announced a new partnership with Cancer Australia to co-fund research on metastatic breast cancer. The Komen – Cancer Australia Partnership will provide $450,000 over three years to fund the research of Dr Delphine Merino at La Trobe University in Australia. Through this partnership, cutting-edge technology will be used to identify genes that help breast cancer cells spread to distant organs and resist the effects of standard therapies. The ultimate goal of Dr. Merino’s research is to find the “Achilles heel” of metastatic breast cancer so that this devastating disease can be better treated and eliminated."
