Breast cancer (BC) is diagnosed in over 10,000 Australian women each year and is the biggest killer of women between 35-54 years of age. My proposal focuses on advancing the pursuit of personalised medicine for BC patients. I plan to do this from combining both prelinical research, as well as developing infrastructure for advancing personalised medicine in the clinical setting.
