Turning Tumor Weaknesses Into Treatment Opportunities

We still don’t fully understand why standard breast cancer therapy fails. Recent advances in technologies and artificial intelligence enable us to study breast cancer relapse with clarity like never before. We want to create and analyze an atlas of changes that occur in tumors that relapse to find new treatments.
