Together We're Finding a Cure!
In 2019, it is expected that 268,600 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnoses in women.
Breast cancer research continues to be an integral part of the John Wayne Cancer Institute. Cancer research allows us to understand breast cancer, find minimally invasive treatment options, and ultimately find a cure. Many of the physicians and surgeons who are treating and caring for patients in the Margie Petersen Breast Center at Providence Saint John’s are also faculty, adjunct faculty, or physicians in a fellowship program affiliated with the John Wayne Cancer Institute.
Our physicians work directly with our research scientists to advance patient care. By studying the mechanism of breast cancer, our researchers can translate lab-based discoveries into personalized bedside treatment. This approach fosters a truly beneficial experience for our patients, as they lead to novel findings and new directions for therapeutic interventions.Learn About Our Translational Research Departments
