LRH-1 is a protein that has recently been shown to be important in colon cancer progression. Because LRH-1 is also present in breast cancer tissue, this research proposal will evaluate the importance of LRH-1 in breast cancer development, and the potential of drugs that inhibit LRH-1 to slow breast cancer progression.
