Functional Analysis of Genetic Susceptibility Loci to Identify Biomarkers and Candidate Genes Associated with Ovarian Cancer Initiation, Progression and Outcome

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Genetic factors can increase a woman's chance of getting ovarian cancer, they can also affect how well a woman responds to treatment when she has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Working as part of a large international team, the three principle investigators of this proposal have identified and characterized multiple genetic factors that can influence both a woman's risk of developing ovarian cancer and the chance of survival after a diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
