Germline and Tumor Genomic Analyses of Breast Cancer in Latinas

​This project expands a consortium of studies examining germline genetic mutations in breast cancer risk in Latinas. It builds on a study that will include approximately 550 Latina women with breast cancer in the Pathways Study; genetic data from Latina women without breast cancer will be contributed from Kaiser Permanente Northern California’s Research Program on Genes, Environment and Health. Led by Susan Neuhausen, PhD, of City of Hope, and Elad Ziv, MD, of UC San Francisco, this project further incorporates Latina cases and controls from studies led by Dr. Neuhausen. While this project includes investigation of tumor DNA, Pathways Study and Kaiser Permanente Northern California participants will not be included in that aspect.
