WASHINGTON (August 17, 2018) — At Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, a group of breast cancer advocates says they’ve created a model for developing productive, successful and sustainable collaborations between advocates and scientists in cancer research. They describe their efforts in an article published online August 17 in the journal Cancer Research.
The Georgetown Breast Cancer Advocates (GBCA), a volunteer group supporting and promoting cancer research at Georgetown University, was formed in 2011. The group has been partly supported through Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center’s cancer center support grant from the National Cancer Institute (1P30-CA-51008), as well as generous gifts from the Nina Hyde Breast Cancer Research Fund and Women and Wine at Georgetown Lombardi.
