About this opportunity:

The MagnaniLab at Imperial College is designing an ambitious and cutting-edge study to understand how breast cancer cells hibernate and reawaken. They are looking for breast cancer patients to attend a focus group and help shape the study design and its goals.

The MagnaniLab is a leading research group in the field of breast cancer research. Their work has shown how cancer cells can evolve and adapt to hormonal therapy. Previously, they have focused on studying these mechanisms in cellular models (cancer cells growing in plastic). They now want to investigate these changes with breast cancer patients. We are looking for a collaborative group of 6-8 breast cancer patients to help develop the design of our study. Discussions on what to prioritise within the study will also be asked, to adjust the study accordingly.

If you are a breast cancer patient who is interested in research, come and contribute to this exciting work!
