Angela Belcher will lead one of seven teams supported by the Gray Foundation for the study of new approaches for prevention, early detection, and interception of BRCA-related cancers. Other teams selected will be led by Joan Brugge (Harvard Medical School), Dipanjan Chowdhury (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute), Amy Degnim (Mayo Clinic), Shawn Demehri (Massachusetts General Hospital), Judy Garber (Dana-Farber Cancer Institute), and Kenneth Olive (Columbia University). The grants are part of the foundation’s ongoing Team Science program, which funds innovative BRCA-related collaborative research.
The Gray Foundation’s Mindy and Jon Gray commented: “As we double down on our Team Science program, it is our fervent hope that families have far better options than exist today. We are inspired to support this cutting-edge research across institutions as we continue to make progress in early detection, prevention, and interception of BRCA-related cancers.”
