Breast Cancer

"The lifetime risk of developing invasive breast cancer is 1 in 8 in women in the United States and 20% of the breast cancer patients die. We are exploring strategies to reduce breast cancer deaths in the clinic."

Huiping Liu, M.D., PH.D.

Cancer Therapy

"Metastasis, the spread of cancer from the original tumor to other sites in the body, is the main cause of death in most cancer patients. We believe our research will contribute to the identification of new therapeutic targets to reduce cancer cell invasion and metastasis."

The Ohio State University

Ohio Cancer Research Special Events are presented to raise funds for seed money cancer research and to make aware the importance of early detection in saving lives. See your doctor for regular checkups.
