Paul Savage, an MD/PhD student in Dr. Morag Park’s lab at the Goodman Cancer Research Centre, recently published the paper “A Targetable EGFR-Dependent Tumor-Initiating Program in Breast Cancer” in the journal Cell Reports. The paper focuses on research surrounding triple negative breast cancer, a highly aggressive form of the disease which tends to relapse within the first three years after diagnosis.

The collaborative study aimed to, “see whether diversity of tumors can be targeted by going after specific cells, known as cancer stem cells,” explained Mr. Savage.
