The Importance of the Young Investigator

In 1990, when we started The Eva Brownman Breast Cancer Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, we provided seed money for the tamoxifen research being done by Dr. Judy Garber. Dr. Garber was then a young investigator.

Dr. GarberJudyGarber is now internationally known for your work in the field of breast cancer.  She is the Director of the Center for Cancer Genetics and Prevention at Dana-Farber and a professor at Harvard Medical School.  Dr. Garber’s  extensive research and work in the field of breast cancer has changed the lives of women throughout the world.

As we look back as well as into the future, we have realize the importance of funding the research of the young investigator.  We have seen that the stars of tomorrow are the young investigators of today.  The stars today were the young investigators of “yesterday.”

Starting in 2016, our events will support the young investigators.  Each year, you will be labphotointroduced to the young investigator that our Medical Advisory Board feels deserves our support; can make a difference today and in the future.  Tomorrow you will meet the young investigator whose research our events will support in 2016.

With your help and support, we can truly make a difference in breast cancer research.
