  1. Breast Cancer Research Michael J Kerin| Professor of Surgery & Research Director, NBCRI Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine

  2. NCRI Predictions 2005-2035Breast Cancer Incidence in Ireland 4833 1771 2010-2030: 53% increase in incidence 3484  623 2781  137 2196 Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine

  3. Total No. of Breast Cancer Cases 2003-2010 University Hospital Galway Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine

  4. Symptomatic Breast Clinic 2009 Annual Report • 2003-2009: number of patients attending the unit increased from 3475 to 9671 • Breast cancer diagnoses increased from 110 to 529 per annum • 2005-2009: 61-68% of women have been treated with breast conservation surgery • 61% of women were given a a post-mastectomy immediate breast reconstruction Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine

  5. UHG Breast Clinic Team Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine

  6. Breast Cancer Research • Laboratory established by Professor Fred Given in 1991 • National Breast Cancer Research Institute (NBCRI) charity funding has enabled research development • Comprehensive specimens biobank and database chaptering over 20 years of patients • National & international scientific and clinical collaborators Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine

  7. Core Research Projects

  8. Postgraduate & Undergraduate Researchers 2005-2011 70% of our student researchers are partially or fully funded by NBCRI Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine

  9. Molecular Profiling:CancerGenes Research Questions? What genes are involved in causing breast cancer? Are genes affected by chemotherapy, radiotherapy etc? Can we develop a cancer gene profile that will improve diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer? Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine

  10. Gene & Cell Therapy:Adult Stem Cells • Stem cells have the potential to develop into many different cell types in the body • Do they develop into cancer cells? • Can they be used to target cancer cells? • Can cells “home” to bone, lungs? Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine

  11.

  18. Clinical and Preclinical Trials • Irish Cooperative Research Group (ICORG) Trial opened in May 2011 Investigating the effect of neoadjuvant therapy on microRNA expression in breast cancer • Preclinical Translational Trials in Animal Models We are translating what we have found in the lab to an in vivo model. The animal facility is based in REMEDI, NUI Galway. Strict ethical guidelines regulate this field of research Breast Cancer Research, School of Medicine
